Read the image using a filestream and store it as a byte array.

Mainly there is System.Drawing.Image class coupled with the System.IO.MemoryStream class and/or some arry of bytes.
First, let's have a look to an example : http://bytes.com/groups/net-c/240875-loading-images-dataset

Hi

Don't you think this will create an overhead to convert the file into stream and then back to the original one

What you name "the file" is stored into the DB as a binary stream, or let say an array of byte. When binding from a DB from a program you always work with a copy, aren't you ? So now you can have several reference on the same data, I don't see a lot of overhead here.
