Saving and retrieving images to and from Azure

MR BILL 261 Reputation points

Does anyone have sample code or can send me in the right direction on how to save and retrieve images from a desktop windows form application to Azure? Let me clarify. I have multiple clients that would be wanting to store images. I'm wanting to store the image like you would in a file directory on your local device but instead of storing it locally store the file in Azure. I currently allow users to either store their FileData(image) in a SQL database File Table or store it locally on their device or a network drive in a folder path and filename. My code will retrieve the image, either stored in the DB or the FilePath and FileName if a checkbox is checked. However, with image sizes becoming larger these days storing them in a DB can explode the size of the DB rather quickly. As long as they have an internet connection whether from a desktop or mobile device I'd like to store the images somehow utilizing Azure. Some of my clients DB's are on an Virtual device in Azure and are connected and synced to through merge replication by both desktops and mobile devices. Some of my clients have their main DB on a local server and mobile devices with an SQL Express DB locally sync through merge replication to the main server DB.
