I was sure that the images were being stored and called from the images

did have an issue of getting the images to show in the beginning, however I
solved it by inserting the path in the call from the DB. I am wondering now
if they are stored in both locations.
Both locations? I think you are confusing yourself.You either have
the images stored in the database OR the file system, but not both.
However, I think you have the images stored as files within the file
directory, such as:
Now, in your database you should have only the path name stored
(i.e., images/picture1.jpg) and not the image. However, I usually
only store the file names and NOT the path. That way I can move the
images to where ever I want and only change their reference in the
To recap, to show any image you use the HTML img tag, such as:
To tie this statement to a database, you need to pull out the image
name (or file path) from the database and use that. Something like
$query = "SELECT file_name FROM pictures WHERE id = '$id' ";
$result = mysql_query($query) or die();
$row = mysql_fetch_array($result);
$file_name = $row['file_name'];
And then in the HTML you would use:
<img src="images/<?php echo($file_name);?>">
If you can get to this part, then we can deal with placing a
watermark on the image before showing it.
Please let me know when you get this part to work.
PS: There is no need to use a LONG BLOB in your database -- that's
just a waste of space.
