Advice Needed Store Images in Database or Drive?

    Using asp.net, c#, mysql or SQL Server. I have a image uploading and
    wanted it to be "secure." Each user has their own section to login and
    upload images. Should I store the images in a database or on the drive
    as files? Not sure how to make it secure any other way but put in the
    database, but wanted to know if that would make it extremely slow when
    downloading the images on the webpage showing them. Thanks for any
    advice.

  2. Putting images in your database is a reasonable solution in many scenarios.
