You can use stream object to insert the image to your database. Here's the sample for you to refer.

1.Store image in database:

Int64 intImageSize;
string strImageType;
Stream ImageStream;

// Gets the Size of the Image
intImageSize = PersonImage.PostedFile.ContentLength;

// Gets the Image Type
strImageType = PersonImage.PostedFile.ContentType;

// Reads the Image
ImageStream = PersonImage.PostedFile.InputStream;

byte[] ImageContent = new byte[intImageSize + 1];
int intStatus;
intStatus = ImageStream.Read(ImageContent, 0, intImageSize);

// Create Instance of Connection and Command Object
SqlConnection myConnection = new SqlConnection(ConfigurationSettings.AppSettings("ConnectionString"));
SqlCommand myCommand = new SqlCommand("sp_person_isp", myConnection);

// Mark the Command as a SPROC
myCommand.CommandType = CommandType.StoredProcedure;

// Add Parameters to SPROC
SqlParameter prmPersonImage = new SqlParameter("@PersonImage", SqlDbType.Image);
prmPersonImage.Value = ImageContent;

SqlParameter prmPersonImageType = new SqlParameter("@PersonImageType", SqlDbType.VarChar, 255);
prmPersonImageType.Value = strImageType;

try {
	Response.Write("New person successfully added!");
catch (SqlException SQLexc) {
	Response.Write("Insert Failed. Error Details are: " + SQLexc.ToString());

 2. Retrieving Images from SqlServer and displaying in a DataGrid
<asp:TemplateColumn HeaderText="Image">
            Width="150" Height="125" 
            ImageUrl='<%# FormatURL(DataBinder.Eval(Container.DataItem, "PersonID")) %>' 
            Runat=server />
//And the method FormatURL (A Server side Function) is as follows. 
   public string FormatURL(object strArgument)
	return ("readrealimage.aspx?id=" + strArgument);
//And the method FormatURL (A Server side Function) is as follows. 
public string FormatURL(object strArgument)
	return ("readrealimage.aspx?id=" + strArgument);
///Database part
public void Page_Load(object sender, EventArgs e)

	string strImageID = Request.QueryString("id");

	// Create Instance of Connection and Command Object
	SqlConnection myConnection = new SqlConnection(ConfigurationSettings.AppSettings("ConnectionString"));
	SqlCommand myCommand = new SqlCommand("Select PersonImageType, PersonImage from das_person_real_images Where PersonID=" + strImageID, myConnection);

	// I have used the select statement. But it would be much much better, if you 
	//could write a small stored procedure which contains the above sql statement.
	// Mark the Command as a SPROC (in case, if you wrote the stored procedure
	//myCommand.CommandType = CommandType.StoredProcedure

	try {
		SqlDataReader myDataReader;
		myDataReader = myCommand.ExecuteReader(CommandBehavior.CloseConnection);
		while ((myDataReader.Read())) {
			Response.ContentType = myDataReader.Item("PersonImageType");
	catch (SqlException SQLexc) {


Hope that helps. Thanks.

Hi, this is an interesting post.  I am curious about if there is something similar you can do to display the SQL image field in a DataGrid in a Windows Forms application too?

Thanks in advance.

display images from SQL Server image across intranet using filestream object
folks  i recently attended an MCPD boot camp where they taught me to access and store images using SQL Server and the filestream object.  Previously i had (sensibly) used a file server and impersonation to copy files.
