Database configuration

I want to configure Slide show 2 to pull the images from a SQL Server database and was wondering how to do it.

Thanks

Assuming you're in a .Net environment:
1. create an ImageHandler to stream the pics from the DB
2. create a datahandler to dynamically generate the data.xml and use the imagehandler (with arguments) in the image url field

-> 1. tons of examples on the web - google "ashx image handler Database"
-> 2. There's a very nice example for this in the discussions of SlideShow 1 - I believe the thread is called "SlideShow from Database - Solution" (or similar)

Hth!
