Load images to oracle table.

Is there any process to load jpeg images into oracle database using a procedure ? The database column will be a blob. I googled, but could not find any that I can use.

If the image is on the database server:
dbms_lob.loadblobfromfile.

images is on the local computer

When you mentioned procedure I was thinking an Oracle Stored Procedure.  Those cannot access a remote file system.

You will need some program running on that computer.  I believe SQL Loader can handle BLOBs but I've never tried.

You ask a lot of Forms questions:  You should be able to upload the image using forms and process it from there.  Might be a simple insert statement from Forms.

In Forms you can use WEBUTIL.Here is a piece of working code:
b_success := webutil_file_transfer.Client_To_DB_with_progress
                                    (clientFile      => :BC_FILE.S_FILE_NAME
                                    ,tableName       => MY_TABLE'
                                    ,columnName      => 'B_FILE' --blob
                                    ,whereClause     => 'N_ATTACH_ID = '||X_N_ID -- PK
                                    ,progressTitle   => 'Upload to Database in progress'
                                    ,progressSubTitle=> 'Please wait'
                                    ,asynchronous    => false
                                    ,callbackTrigger => null
                                    );
