i know that postgres has a raw binary datatype called bytea for storing pictures and whatnot, but i'm having trouble finding an example of displaying an image on a web page with php that is pulled directly from the database?
is this possible?
You probably don't want to use bytea as it will use a lot of ram for larger images.
Instead you will want to look at large objects. The functions you want are:
*pg_loreadall()* *pg_lo_read_all()* <http://www.php.net/manual/en/function.pg-lo-read-all.php>
*pg_locreate()* *pg_lo_create()* <http://www.php.net/manual/en/function.pg-lo-create.php>

*pg_loopen()* *pg_lo_open()* <http://www.php.net/manual/en/function.pg-lo-open.php>

if so, how?
Tutorials that shows how to upload and store image/binary files in a database also usually shows how to retrieve them (and in the case of images, also how to display them).
One function you'll find useful is
