Insert image stored in database


#1

Hi,

Can one directly insert in a markdown document an image stored as a large object in a database?


#2

Some questions:
(1) in what format is the image stored?
(2) can the image be retrieved using an R script?
(3) what type of database is it?

Hi @rich_i

Thanks for your reply.

Pictures are stored in an Oracle database as CLOB or BLOB objects.
Regarding (2), I have access to the database and am able to retrieve text/data files stored similarly to my image files directly from R scripts. So the connection is not a problem. The mechanism to extract data corresponding to image files and print them to a markdown document is the key problem.
