It's me again.

I just tried to change the image field in tt_products from blob to

It was good to use such a low value because now I'm aware of a little
problem: The filename is often longer than 20 and probably longer than 100

Is there anywhere a rule about length of filenames? How long should the
varchar be? Can/should it be undimensioned like the blob field was?
