If you mean the image's file content, like file("f.png").read(), then
yes, it can be pickled but if you mean an image object from a graphic
toolkit then I don't know but wouldn't bet on it.
Never the less I would recomend keeping a pointer (a path if it is
kept in the filesystem) to the image file and storing the metadata in a
database like SQLite.
