i have some questions about saving images to bd :

is there a way to save images to bd??

i am using inputFile but no luck with that there is no way i can instanlly transform the file to byte and save it withoud having it uploaded....

and finally i know how does the inputFile shows but i'd like to have something else display i just want the dialog functionallity to pick the file can that be done??

You can use BLOB - Binary Large Object in SQL.
Alternatively you can upload that image on a photo server and put a link to it into the databse.
