Hello Jeroen,

Unfortunately there is no work around. When retrieving a picture you should use a for instance c-program to extract the data out of the database: <img src="c-program parameter">

On the other hand storing pictures from the client filesystem into the database is not supported by the WAS3.0 PL/SQL cartridge. On oracle goverment there is an alternative cartridge available. I am not sure but I think that this uploading is supported by OAS4 though.
