Blob or link to file on ftp?

Hello Experts!

I have to store images somewhere and I don't know which way I should choose:
1. Hold them in database directly
2. Keep them in ftp server and hold just links in database. I thought that's better solution because I save a lot of space in database and I can easier manage data in database, quicker backups etc.
But not sure it's a good idea, maybe you have some experience with that, please suggest what you would do.

Thanks for help.

Thanks for that, I will not close this question yet, just wait for other experts  to reply.
For now I still think database and paths to images stored on FTP is better solution, I'm not going to store more than 10.000 images, might be increased to 100.000 in future.
