You want to save image to MySql db right?
Asim NazirCommented:
Use oledb with my sql provider to save the image to the db using mysql oledb provider, odbc, or use the managed ado.net one.  The example below should be simular for all of them

MySQL Connectors

    Public Sub SaveImage(ByVal imageData As Byte())
        Using con As New OleDb.OleDbConnection("connectionString")
            Using cmd As New OleDb.OleDbCommand("Insert into images ( image ) values ( ? )", con)
                cmd.Parameters.AddWithValue("image", imageData)
            End Using
        End Using
    End Sub
