Export picture from mysql database to file

As our data getting mobile and copying picture is annoying for me I decide to save the picture in the database (mysql).

Another challenge came when other division need the data exported in a directory with same dimension (135 x 180 pixel).

Structure for table ‘student_pic’  :

CREATE TABLE `student_pic` (
  `image_id` int(10) unsigned NOT NULL auto_increment,
  `username` varchar(50) NOT NULL default ”,
  `image_type` varchar(50) NOT NULL default ”,
  `image` longblob NOT NULL,
  `image_size` bigint(20) NOT NULL default ‘0’,
  `image_name` varchar(255) NOT NULL default ”,
  `image_date` datetime NOT NULL default ‘0000-00-00 00:00:00’,
  UNIQUE KEY `image_id` (`image_id`)
