Store an image file in the iSeries

How can I store image (for example gif, bmp) file in the iSeries? Can you show me the table/physical file example, how to store & how to retrieve? I'm trying to view the image using Delphi programming.

You can create the field to store the image as a Binary Large Object, or BLOB. You can find information on how to declare the fields in the information center. Note that some languages on the system will not process a file containing a BLOB field.
