You do not store a path. Store the ID from the entity. That ID would be used to access the entity at a later time.

Browsing would just be a matter of invoking the API method to get the entities. You can use the keys returned to access the binary data of the content, then stream that back to the portlet for display.

You can reference the current source for the IG portlet to see how it's displaying the images inline for an example.

You're mixing David up. You probably mean "Document and Media" library. IG portlet in David's reply means Image Gallery portlet but that's just "Document and Media" portlet in the current version.
