What language are you doing the displaying in? Which database are you doing the storage in?

We have quite a few tutorials on database and .NET interaction - so start there. then the question is how you want to hold the images. Depending on how many or what your setup is you have two major options.

One is to actually store them in your database table as a byte array. The downside is your tables get huge and fat with all of this data.

The other option is store your images in a folder on the sever (after giving them a unique name) and storing the path in the database table.

The choice is yours to make tailored to your situation.
