Hi,

Well you can create a multi-part form with a file input, submit the
form…
get the image data from the uploaded image and store it in a binary
field.
For showing it again, um, perhaps a controller action to show images
which
uses send_data. A much nicer way would not to store images in the
database,
such as looking at the file_column or attachment_fu plugins.

Cheers,
James

I suggest you look at the attachment_fu plugin.
