Is it possible to store product images or pictures in to the file system?

Just like "SO-PDF" or "Attachments" with system parameters:

Parameter: ir_attachment.location Value: file:///filestore

This is very important for DB backup file size!

Hello David,

Is it completed ?

I found this module,  I am giving it a try and let you know, but this aims to store image on file system, storing product images not only adds to the database size but also slows down the product page load time
