When you say image "data", what format is this data in? Is it a byte array, a base-64 encoding of the bytes, etc.?

OK, when you say "table", do you mean database table?

If I recall correctly, using a DataReader, the data will be returned as a byte array. You can cast the column holding the data into a byte array, and then write those bytes out to disk.

e.g.

SqlDataReader reader = cmd.ExecuteReader();  // I assume you have set up your connection and command objects already

while (reader.Read())
{
    byte[] imgData = (byte[])reader["imgColumn"];
    string uid = (string)reader["uidColumn"];
    string filename = System.IO.Path.ChangeExtension(uid, ".jpg");

    System.IO.File.WriteAllBytes(filename, imgData);
}

Open in new window


If that approach doesn't work for you, then there are some classes that deal with specific SQL server types in .NET. We may need to involve some of those classes.
