Not really. Unless the database (and the rest of the environment!) deal
with the image format natively (1), you're going to be pushing it through at
least a smidgen of conversion code. So you can do whatever the database
needs to have done, even if that means splitting it up and storing the image
as a bunch of (tagged) pieces. Sure, it may be a little more work to setup
with some databases than others, but you only have to do that once.
Now, all else being equal this might influence your choice of database, but
unless you're stuck with one that just can't cope with so much [total] data,
you can do what needs doing. One way or another...
(1) say, along the lines of being able to drag the image from a viewer into
a field in a form that's used for data entry. I'm not sure that cutting and
pasting a file name is the same sort of integration, though it might sqeak
by on a technicality.
If I had charged one dollar for Samba, it would have never been successful.
The way I was doing stuff was not about money, and I am not at all resentful
of companies that have made money from Samba. At the same time, if they all
went away, we would still have a great community to work on stuff. I think
of the last year or two as being the biggest private investment in public
works in decades. -- Andrew Tridgell
