I would suggest looking into existing web-based e-commerce solutions.
Plenty are open source and I'm sure have a "inventory management"
view for specifying product attributes and and pictures. For example,
Drupal has an e-commerce module:
Also opentaps (http://www.opentaps.org/) has a product management
module which I pretty sure supports pictures. Check out the online demo.
Both solutions are open source and support PostgreSQL.
