Jacob, I have a gallery i created with a Java template, PHP, and MYSQL. In the admin section you create category's and upload the images to a folder eg: Pictures On upload the script water marks and creates Thumb nails for use in the gallery. http://www.helenshappyhome.co.uk/gallery.php Visitors can then select what gallery they wish to view, and the PHP pulls the relevant images Before i did this, i did a lot of looking into it and was advised using the DB to store the image/binary would be a big no on performance of the site. I do not know how true this is.

Just wondering if it's better to either store uploaded images, via something like a form of CMS, in a static folder, with a unique name based on something like the data record's id field, when keeping track of it's location like that, or is it better to actually store the binary data of the image file in the mySQL database itself, and then sort of stream it back out when displaying the image, and if so, would presume that would be relatively simple to implement, but, OTOH, if you were then using the data to then render static content output for later use, it would, obviously, be better to keep the image content static as well...? Thoughts/examples?
