INSERT INTO MyTable (MyImageColumn)

First of all inserting pictures into SQL Server 2005 table will take lot of space and will also degarde the performace of your db.

The best way to proceed is  save the reference path(URL) of the picture and save the picture on the local disk.

this way the db wont be of massive size and the performance will also be good.

Please let me know if this helps
