Hi,

In your MrSQL DB, try saving the PATH where the images are being saved to. If all your pictures are being saved to your local pc : C:\Pictures, then save the path in the db. Example : If you have 2 column names :
 Car Types | Picture
  Ferarri      |  C:\Pictures\Ferarri.jpg
  Porsche   |  C:\Pictures\Porsche.jpg
  Bmw        |  C:\Pictures\Bmw.jpg

Just save he Path where the image is, under the Picture column in your DB. If you are saving the images to a server then your path would change to something like this : \\Servername\Pictures\Ferarri.jpg and so on.

Hope this helps in any way

Well the way I see it, is by saving the Path(which will be a text value) apposed to  saving an actual image, would be the speed to which your data will be loaded.

In your application you can use 1 picturebox/Image control, to load your images. All that needs to happen is, the picturebox/image control has to read the Path, and then display the image.
