ok, first of all make sure your form tag is like :
<form method="POST" name="ImageForm" action="UploadImage.php3" 

The ENCTYPE is important!

Next, make sure you have a field like:
<input type="file" size="50" name="txtImage">
type="file" is important!  This will present a browse button for the user to browse 
their drives

something like this seems to work - drop the addslashes if it is not a binary file, 
such as an image
$filecontents = addslashes(fread(fopen($txtImage, "r"), filesize($txtImage)));
$thisfiletype = $txtImage_type;
 $db = mysql_select_db("somedb", $someconnection) or die ("db");
 $sql = "INSERT INTO Images (..all the fields...) VALUES ('$filecontents',...and all 
the rest of the fields')";

 $sql_result = mysql_query($sql,$someconnection) or die ("could not insert into DB");


Hope this helps..
