I agree with 2 and 3, but not so much with 1.

I have designed databases specifically to hold images and files and I'll probably do so again. His comment "access to the files now requires going through your app and DB layers" is exactly why I choose to store files in a database. There are other reasons to do so as well.

But, it's still a matter of using the right tool for the right job -- you need to really think about what you're doing.
