What is "best practice" for storing and retrieving images?
If I look at dotLRN (header image) and OpenACS (user-portrait) I should conclude that the Content Repository is the way to go. However, this creates 2 objects per image and rows in 5 tables (I believe).
I plan to display these images, together, in another 'custom' object.
As I was reading Gratuitous use of acs_objects? I started to wonder whether storing images this way is the right way to go .
What is "best practice"? What gives "best performance"? Any suggestions?
