Question Safe to move images and avatars from the database to the filesystem?

Hi,
I am looking in to some server optimization and i am thinking of moving the avatars, user profile pictures and attachments from the database to the filesystem.

My forum had over 2.5 million posts and 13.000 members.
I have the following questions:

Is this safe? Did anybody experience any problems doing this?
What is the best procedure to do this?
How long will it take approx.?
