I usually put or die(mysql_error())  and make it work before I put in the @,
that's been done already. This will display the image

$result = @mysql_query($query);
$row = mysql_fetch_row($result);
$path = $row[0];
print "<img src=\"$path\">";

What I want is to display a 'save as' box to download the image whose file
path is stored in the variable $path. Am I doing something wrong in the
header section? The print statement would be commented out if I used this.

$file_path = basename($path);
header("Content-Type: application/download\n");
header("Content-Disposition: attachment; filename=$file_name");
header("Content-Transfer-Encoding: binary");
