I haven't recently done my research on this yet. I can recall from memory that I did some short research on storing images in a database and also had some questions answered in the forum about it. Additionally, I was told it is not a good practice to store them in a database because of their size. Now, I'm developing a web mobile app using jQuery for mobile and PHP and want to let users to store their profile image as a thumbnail.
Currently, I can't use the form element "file" to let them upload their profile image but I think there is a way around this which I will be looking into soon.
My questions are: 1- After figuring out the right form element that is used in mobile apps, do I store my user's profile image in the database as blob?
2- Is there a good framework that does the job for us pretty quickly?
I hope to hear from someone really soon.
