Then you're doing it wrong.  Good database designers would put BLOB
type data into a table of their own with a unique ID for each.  Then
the places where you need these blobs you just store that ID.

Yeah, it is very much like storing the image on the file system and
recording a file name, BUT, you get to keep the client/server
abstraction and you get to make the DBA responsible for data safety.
