Storing an Image Into SQL Server 2008

Clif asked
Last Modified: 2012-05-11
Yes, I'm aware of the arguments against storing an image in SQL Server, but it has to be done none the less.

So, everything I've run across seems to imply that you need VB pr C# (or some other dev platform).  Is it not possible to write a SQL query of sorts to copy an image from a BMP file into a BLOB field of SQL Server (and a corresponding query to take it from the field and create a file)?

If so, how?
