Hi all,

I am tring to upload an image to a blob field and just created a field on type blob, thinking that was it...but I get all types of different things over the net..so now I have this:

<form id="form" method="post" enctype="multipart/form-data">
<input type="file" name="thumbnail" />

...then to save:

$thumbnail = $_REQUEST['thumbnail'];

//Not sure about this:
$fileName = $_FILES['thumbnail']['name'];
 $tmpName = $_FILES['thumbnail']['tmp_name'];
 $fileSize = $_FILES['thumbnail']['size'];
 $fileType = $_FILES['thumbnail']['type'];

and finally:

$sql = "insert into users(firstname,lastname,phone,email,thumbnail) values('$firstname','$lastname','$phone','$email','$thumbnail')";

I'm I doing this wrong? I'm confused with this.

Thanks
