Storing images as blobs on a database (SQL or NoSQL) is usually a bad practice, and I really doubt Strapi is storing them in MongoDB. What happens most of the time is the image gets uploaded to some folder on your server and the path to such image is stored in the database (MongoDB in this case).

I would recomend looking first at Strapi's documentation if you have not already done so; also take a look at your server folders, there must be a folder where the images are saved (file names will probably be different, but the files should still be there as images).
