Options for displaying IMAGES???

    I'm working on an e-commerce type site where I have a bunch of categorized
    items... once you drill down to the items page, I show the list of items
    with a "preview picture". When you click on the item itself, there are 1 to
    n detail pictures. What is the best way to do this?

    1) Should I store the images in the database?
    2) seems easier to store them in the /images directory, but then backing up,
    restoring or scaling the database becomes a head ache.
    3) how do I show the images? there doesn't seem to be a way to get a
    repeater control or datalist to render them.
    4) doing a getimage.asp?imageid=10 seems hokey and poor performance wise

    Thanks!
