    uploading images from webcam into database

    Hey Guys!

    Does anyone know if and how I can send any images taken by a motion detection webcam into a database table (MS Access)?

    thanks for any idea

    Well you won't really be able to store the images there per se since databases only store umm data like text. You can store the locations of the images in a database but the images would need to take up physical space on the server.
    If you can't handle the job then don't take the job or ask for help on it if you are getting paid for it.

    thanks for your input. That's not a problem I can upload the images on the
    server and link them to my db.

    I tested my webcam last night. Unfortunately, when the camera detected some motion, it started taking pictures until no more motion was detected. That was not good!

    This is what I need to do:
    1) someone enters the office
    2) webcam takes 1 shot
    3) shot is automatically entered into a database (either as a pic or file name)
    4) at a later moment, user will review the shots and add comments to each
    customer (i.e. potential customer, friend, etc.).

    Any idea on how to achieve this?
