Hi,

see Field Datatypes for a quick overview about the supported types. There is a binary data type that can be used to store blobs like images etc... as Base64 encoded string, but most of the time I think its better storing binary data elsewhere outside elasticsearch and only store pointers to it, since binary data is not searchable and can increase your index size dramatically.
