RE: Storing Images in SQL Server (2005)

My view as well - all apps that do this are moving away or have moved
away from this SQL method.

I would suggest using views to control access

In my experience storing and retrieving images from MS SQL is
significanly slower compared to pulling images via a file system.

I use ADO stream object to retrieve the images and stream them directly
to the end user browser, I do not use a temporary file. Too hard to
come up with unique names for the temporary file for each user, plus you
have clean up of the temporary files.
