After a lot of trying and hard work I finally manged to store an image into an SQL Server database using a byte array. But now I'm stuck at how to retrieve it back into my application's picture box control. This is what I need to do: I need to retrieve the saved image straight back into my application's picture box control. Is it possible? How to do that? Please help!!!

Software/Hardware used:
VB.NET 2005, SQL Server 2005 Express Edition

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

It is usually recommended that you not store graphics within the database. The database will quickly become a performance bottleneck and you will see your database grow quickly to a very large size.

That said, I posted an answer to a similar question up on the SearchSQLServer.com site in the mailbag last week. It’s very high level as I’m not a programmer, but should give you a starting point.
