Unfortunately I don't know perl too well so the above is pretty cryptic
to me too. From my cursory reading - seems the above just registers
PostgreSQL datatypes with DBD.

Which language are you programming in?  My default encoding for my
database is UTF-8, but I don't recall having to do anything special that
wasn't already implicitly done by the driver I was using and I think the
npgsql ADO.NET driver already takes care of registering the Pg bytea and
other PG specific data types so my guess is you are not using .NET.
Then again I don't do too much of storing images in the database.

Seems then that whatever you are doing is not translating your data to
bytea format correctly.

Hope that helps,
