Hmm, thank you for the suggestion but there is no description of inserting external images through Popup window.

At least on web page:

The popup window shows an "Export" but NO expected "Import" button.
Any other way (e.g. by cut and paste through clipboard or by drag&drop) does not work.

So any other suggestion?

See the help in the section "Using the Popup Window" under "The Contents tab and editing data"

I am searching for a way to visually (!) load and save BLOB content into/from columns.

Visually means NOT programmatically through e.g. Java but with a GUI based tool like Squirrel.

I expected e.g. a right-click context menu "load" for a certain BLOB column row which let me import a
*.jpg image file directly from hard disc directory.

I tried to find a solution with Toad for MySQL but was not successful.
Unfortuantely there seems no such way in Toad for MySQL.

What about Squirrel? Is this somehow possible?

Thank you
