A FORM submission is supposed to return an HTML document, not a JPEG.

Have your return document look more like this:

echo "<IMG SRC=display.php?pathname=$form_data_name>";

Then, move your header() and fread into the display.php file.

The catch is the file is DELETED after the upload script finishes.

So what you *REALLY* need to do is use http://php.net/copy_uploaded_file
first and pass the new home of that file into your display script.

If that infobar is being spewed out before your headers, though, you'll have
to dink around some more, and *MAYBE* even go so far as to name your
display.php script /screwy/display.jpeg, and have an .htaccess file in
/screwy that makes JPEG get parsed by PHP.  Your actual JPEGs then, should
*NOT* go in /screwy/ but some place where they are just regular old jpeg

You may be able to avoid that by using:

echo "<IMG SRC=display.php/fakeoutinfobar.jpeg/pathame=$form_data_name>"

PHP and Apache will ignore that bogus fakeoutinfobar.jpeg in there, but
infobar will probably see this URL as a JPEG and not output the HTML.
