Storing and accessing Images from physical application folder is better way as compare to Database.

However, you may have a look at below link for several Question-Answers posted on this topic earlier here on CodeProject.

You store the binary data of the image in a varbinary(max) field in SQL server. You can retrieve this data using ADO.net, Entity Framework or NHibernate. When you are working with the data in C# it will be in the form of a byte[]

there is a CodeProject article which explains it all:

Storing and Retrieving Images from SQL Server Using Strored Procedures and C#.net[^]
