I've done that kind of thing on several occasions, also using FIBPlus.
The actual code for storing the image depends largely on where you've
got it to begin with. I'll assume you're using some sort of TImage

All you really need to do is:


You could also use LoadFromStream, but personnaly, I've always had a bit
of trouble getting this to work, so I always use a temp file.

I made myself a simple little routine for resampling a bitmap,
converting it to jpeg, and saving it to a blobfield (using MWA Jpeg
library). If you're interested, I could send it to you, though it really
isn't very complicated. If you just want to store the image as-is, it's
even simpler of course.
