Image storage - database ot file system?

Which is best for performance?

Also what are the advantage of one over another?

The file system is much better, the database storage has to query the database for every image for every page load. If your using the file system it makes it much easier to backup your images.

Also, storing images in the db causes the database to get real big real fast.

Thanks guys.

I thought the sameā€¦but i wanted to be sure.

I just moved mine to file now. I think the database will become bigger much quicker with images.
