this is my first post here and iam not very sure if this where it goes. so forgive me if it's the wrong place.
I have a problem with storing images in my database so I started searching the web. It seems like everybody is with storing the link of the image rather than storing the image itself in the database.
I dont know if my case is different, I am designing a website with which people fill in a form and submit their images (as part of the application). Isn't it better to store the image itself rather than the url since images will be at a remote location
I have used longBLOB and it seems to store the image as a string of numbers but I am not sure how to retrieve the image as an image not numbers.
How do I go about it? Can anybody help?
