I have hosted my website on godaddy.com. THey have a limitation on the size of db. So i cannot load all the photos i have into the db. I wanted to store the photo into the file system and store the path into the database. At this point I still m not sure
why were photos required to be stored into the db. as this has some catastrophic performance issus on my website. I am lookig for some samples to see if somebody has already changed the code to store the name of he tfile rather tha the image bytes itself.
Many thanks in Advance,

I have done what you are asking for.
you need a file upload control and this uploadcatimage will return the path where the image is.
private string UploadCatImage()
string filepath = string.Empty;
string savepath = string.Empty;
string virtualfolder = string.Empty;
filepath = Server.MapPath("./") + "Category";
if (FileUpload1.PostedFile.ContentLength != 0)
string filename = string.Empty;
string str = tbuname.Text.ToString();
filename = str + "." + GetExtension(FileUpload1.PostedFile.FileName);;
savepath = "Category/" + filename;
FileUpload1.PostedFile.SaveAs(filepath + "/" + filename);
savepath = "Category/blankimg.jpeg";
private string GetExtension(string FileName)
string split = FileName.Split('.');
string Extension = split[split.Length - 1];
