You can store files as BLOBS in the database. In the database it wont be stored in folders but as its own internal representation

I was able to save image in a sql database but now how would I display that image in an image control?
This is how I saved the image.
                byte[] sponsorimage = new byte[sponsorupload.PostedFile.ContentLength];
                HttpPostedFile Image = sponsorupload.PostedFile;
                Image.InputStream.Read(sponsorimage, 0, (int)sponsorupload.PostedFile.ContentLength);

                scon = new SqlConnection("Data Source=sadev01;Initial Catalog=Hometourads;Persist Security Info=False;User ID=sa_sql;Password=str@teg1K@m3r1ka");
                scmd = new SqlCommand("SA_STPR_Hometourads_Insert", scon);
                scmd.CommandType = CommandType.StoredProcedure;

                scmd.Parameters.AddWithValue("@sponsor_logo", sponsorimage);

            catch (Exception ex)
                throw new Exception(ex.Message);


Now I want to display this image in an image control. What should I have to do in order to display it?

Set the ImageControl's Image property to Image object that you constructed
