I have a series of ssrs reports that show a logo for the company running the report.   I am deciding between the web image and database image, but don't know which one is better.  

The database image can be queried which is nice but I don't know how to get an image in Sql Server 2005 via sql management studio.  Is it hard to change the url from a database value for a web based ssrs image?

Thanks,

With SSRS I find it's best to have the images available on the web site, and use the database to pick the images. Use an expression in the image location, to pull the value out of Fields("ImageURL").Value
