Showing images stored in mysql using php


I want to show all images (stored in mysql database) in a HTML table using PHP. Please help me that how it should be possible...???

Avatar of waygood

run a query to list all images and put the name (and location if not in current folder) as the source (SRC) of an image tag:-

// assume already connected
$result="SELECT * FROM images";
  echo '<img src="'.$row['image_name'].'"/>';
If image (source code of image) is stored in database (not just the filename) use an external php script to load them, modify at your convenience:

<img src="imageloader.php?imageid=<?=$row['imageid']?>">

====== imageloader.php =======
$query = "select image,i_filetype from images where image_id = '". $imageid ."'";
$result = @MYSQL_QUERY($query);

$data = @MYSQL_RESULT($result,0,"image");
$type = @MYSQL_RESULT($result,0,"i_filetype");

header('Content-type: ' . $type);
echo $data;
doh!    $result=mysql_query("SELECT * FROM images");

I dont advise storing images in a database. I did it for my first website and it was more trouble than it was worth
out of curiosity, waygood, why was it more trouble then it was worth?
I use images in my db, and it has made my life so much easier.

nplib: Size of Database became very large and backup scripts I wrote, took too long to execute (although I have a better way now). Moving the site to another server was a pain (internet was slower a few years back so file transfer was slower).
