I think I know conceptually what I want to do, but I lack the technical coding skills to get it right.  Any help/guidance will be sincerely appreciated.

I am working with a simple MySQL membership database - one record for each member.

 I also have a set member photos (mugshots) stored as jpg images in a folder on the server.

I would like to store a path to each member's photo in the MySQL database record for that member and then, use PHP code, to grab that photo and display it as part of the member's "Profile".


What is the proper way to store an image path in a MySQL field?
What PHP code do I need to grab & display the member's photo record?

Unfortunately, my MySQL & PHP coding & syntax skills are petty lame, so any specific code examples would me much appreciated.
