I want to store some 512x512 icons for my Android app in a Room database. This is so each item in a list can have all the text data along with the image data stored in a single record.
The answers to this question https://stackoverflow.com/questions/46337519/how-insert-image-in-room-persistence-library indicate this is not a good practice, however the images I'm saving aren't even 1 kilobyte.
Under these circumstances would it be acceptable to store images in a database like this?
I want the database to come preloaded with certain default list items, but the users will also be able to add their own items with custom icons. Given that this is the case it may be better to just store URIs in the database but I would like some insight on this.
