I`m using Card Five ID Printing Software for ID Card Printers. It is card design software, and I want to print cards with data that is stored in MSSQL Server database. The problem is with storing photos of employees. I tried different formats JPG, BMP and I used binary reader from C# to populate image filed in my database.

I would apreciate if anyone have some idea how to solve this problem , and what format of data, Card Five software is using? Thanks!

No correct solution


According to their website, Card Five supports (at least) JPEG images.

How are you storing the images? To store files before FILESTREAM came along, we used a varbinary(max) field and wrote a simple C# front-end to take the stream and save it (or open it) based on the MIME type (which we stored in the table with the data). While MIME did add a small bit of overhead, it was much easier to work with the data.
