I have written a simple image uploading system to go along with a simple
database.  This will be a part of a publiclay accessable search engine for a
jewelry companie's web site.  Almost every entry has a corresponding image.
But that was the easy part...  The problem now is that I need to display the
images next to the corresponding info on the same page.

I do not know much about UNIX permissions but I am strongly advised to keep
the permission settings on the public-html directory set to 0755 at the very
least.  Since the PHP script inhereits user permissions (and not the Owner's
permission)  this means that I can not upload the files to the Public-html
directory where I could easily grab them with a URL.  The only place I have
access is outside the public html directory.  Of couse I can open any number
of images I like and read them to the browser screen... but they can not
mingle with HTML becuase I have to set the header("Content-type:
image/jpeg") in order to display the image in the first place.  ARRGGH!

It is forcing me to use frames or a floating window to display the images..
which is absoutely totaly unacceptable.  Aside from being a hack solution
there is no way I can align the images with the corresponding database info.
And inline frames are not supported by all browsers.


I am being blocked on all ends and I need a solution fast.  Any help will be
**GREATLY** appreciated.
