They are stored in the db. (see the link Nicole posted) This was originally
to avoid security issues involved in writing to the file system.

You can upload patron images individually by accessing the patron account
in the staff interface. Bulk upload is also possible via the Tool menu in
the staff interface.

I'm not quite sure how to answer this one given that I am not familiar with
Koha's ldap code. Maybe someone else can comment who uses both ldap and
patron images.
