1) This is not a code writing service, please show us what you have so far and we can guide you.

2) SQL Server is better for storing tons of records.

While @Rabbit is correct, this is not a code writing service, so you'll not get any code from me up front, but I will give some advice. It's bad practice to store your images in the database.

While it can be done, it's not a good use of resources to have to hit your database every time you need an image. Common practice is to store your images in a folder in your application/web application then store the image name and path in a database table.

Just my 2 :)
