u cann't use INSERT INTO command for insering an image value
(i.e BLOB data).
u can create a database block with your required table.so that
u can save an image item into your table directly.If u want to insert image vlaue by using "Insert Into" command, first u have to convert your image data(that is a BFILE data) into BLOB, after
that u can use insert into command to inserting an BLOB data.

(Remember that, when u browse an image, the data is like BFILE NOT BLOB.u must have convert BFILE to BLOB by Using DBMS_LOB package.)

please see the following link:
