best practice for images

Posted By:      Posted Date: September 06, 2010    Points: 0   Category :ASP.Net
I am fairly new to Asp.net development and I would like to know what is the best approach for adding images to a web site, do I create a Images folder or do I add the images as a resource on the resouces section. At the minute I have a site where I'm doing both, some images are being displayed and some arent, I would like a method that works and that I can apply as my default image workpractice

Best Practice to store images and rich media


I am working on a project in which I have to store atleast 100000 images and rich media like virtual tour, promotional videos.

I would like to know the best practice to store it in order to retrieve it in show it on website.

What should I store it as:

Store the url into the database and store the actual image on the physical server. 

Store the image itself as a binary into the sql server itself and then convert it to runtime and show on the website.

I need to know which way is the best and suitable way to do this task.

Reading and Writing Images From a Windows Mobile Database using UltraLite 10(C#)

Periodically I get a request for information on how to read and write binary data to a database running on Windows Mobile. If you search the Internet you can typically find examples that are available on Windows Desktops or allow you to read and write to a local file system. The problem is that it can take a bit of work to get this code to work on Windows Mobile accessing a database.

Ultimately you might be asking, why would I want to store and image in a database? Well in an environment where you synchronizing data between a local mobile database and a consolidated (central) database this can be extremely useful. Imagine if an insurance adjuster went to an accident scene, took a picture of a damaged car, loaded it into his Windows Mobile database and then replicated that image up to the Insurance headquarters for approval. All of this could be done in a very short period of time when using images in the database. Another good example might be a doctor who was waiting for a patient chart to become available. If you could store the image in a database this chart could be sent down to the doctor's device once it became available.

For this article I am not going to get into how to synchronize the images to and from a remote and central database as this is typically fairly straightforward when using a data synchronization technologies like MobiLink

Save images to SQL CE

Storing binary objects (such as image, office document etc.) into database is a little cumbersome when it comes to retrieval. Hence the most commonly accepted way is only store the file path in the database, and to store the documents on a file share.
