 $link = mysql_connect('localhost')or die ("Could not connect");
 mysql_select_db('img760')or die ("Could not select database");
 $query = "select imglocation,height,width from img where
        imgname=$getimg"; //****you haven't defined $getimg anywhere that I can see
                        // also need to enclose it in quotes: '$getimg'
  $results = mysql_fetch_array($query); //new line
 $imglocation = $reults['imglocation']; 
 $height = $results['height'];
 $width = $results['width'];
