How to store jpeg file in spatialite blob column so that spatialite gui and Qgis can recognise the format and show the image. I have created in memory jpeg from raster bands using jpeglib and stored that in spatialite but spatialite gui can not recognise the format. I also tried converting the whole jpeg to hexwkb format no results.

Have you tried rasterlite? I assume you want to display jpg as a raster layer? – Simbamangu Oct 1 '12 at 13:17

QGIS can't, as far as I'm aware, open images stored in blob format in Spatialite.
