I  dont think you can retrive name of the image once it is saved to database, since binary decoding will concentrate more on content rather than the external data such as image name/size etc..

Alternate solution: Have an additional field for storing Image_name, so at the time of attaching the file, populate the name in the coressponding field... That way you can retrive it for further use....

Thank you Deep, I have added extra field mid_image_name in product.template. My question is how can i populate that name in this field automatically. Can you please tell me the way to get that image name automatically to this mid_image_name field?
