Subject Re: Attachments Axis and .NET

Not fully answering your question, but you might want to consider 
returning only URL's to the image, instead of the image itself.
Configure your http server to serve the image url's with or without 
authentication (embedded into the url for example).

That way, whoever consumes your web service only loads the images he wants.
