Retrieving binary files from SQL database using Web Services

Hello Experts Exchange. I need to create a Web Service in VB to download files in jpg, or png, or pdf format from a database for my web application. I have the insert part working via web services but I'm having problem with the download part.
Attached there is a screenshot of the table that I'm currently using.
I hope to hear from you soon.

I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Non of your columns can be NULL, otherwise your data model has problem. Cause it makes no sense to insert files of the size zero.

hmm, have you considered using FILESTREAM?

And for the rest: Please post a concise and complete example.. Cause "having problem with the download part" without code (sample) and error messages is pretty vague.
