I have a table in which one column is image data type & data is already there.
Now when in running selcet query,its retuen value in hexadecimal code.
Actually i want actual image.
So can any body tell me how can i query so that i get the image in management studio.
If it is not possible then any other option???
Hi, I wrote SQL Image Viewer, and it will do what you need, which is to display any images (gif, jpg, png, bmp, tif, ico, psd etc) retrieved by your query. It identifies the image type from the image data itself. In addition, it'll also identify most types of binary data that may be returned by your query e.g. pdf, xls, doc, zip, bz2, gz, wav, mp3, etc. It can also export your image and binary data to disk.
Give the trial version a run and if you have any further questions, just ask.

you wont get an image to be rendered in SSMS, its not that sort of interface, you'll have to use the image datatype in an application and use the control there to display the image.
