If I were to build a gallery of stock images that may consists of more than 1000 images, would it be better to store the images in mysql or on the directory?

Directory hands down.

Something you can do is to give each image a property number in a database which refers to the URL of the image in a folder, and has whatever other information you need.

Alright thanks, I'll go with directory then.
