    Sybase has a text datatype which can be compared to Oracle's blob datatype.

    Sybase ASE has a text and a image datatype.
    Both can handle large amounts of data, like images.

    The text datatype is more like a very long varchar. When storing data in a text column, characterset conversion takes place.
    Data in image columns is stored 'as is', that is what you want for images.

    The image datatype is what you want.
