How to take votes and rank images using PHP and MySQL

I'm trying to build a php ranking system for images. As soon as the user clicks on the image it gets upvoted by 1. Depending on how an image is ranked decides what its place on the leaderboard (rank number) would be. The rank should change depending on the different ratings it receives from users. I want to keep ranking ip based as in like no same user can vote twice.  I have written the frontend code for the same.

Would integrate it if needed.

@Ray Doing that with images would be a little different. Could you please write an article for the same?

gigs project cost money
Of course Gigs cost money!  Why?  Because they're worth it.  

You get value from the help of a knowledgeable and experienced developer.  The alternative is for you to take the time and effort to learn everything a developer already knows, and then do the work yourself.  Even in a concentrated learning environment such as a university, you would need months to learn what you're asking me to write an article about.  If I had the "free time" to write the article, I would consider it.  But the truth is that all of the information a developer would need is already in the article about vote counting.

If you're new to PHP and want to learn the language, this article can help.  It will show you good learning resources and help you avoid the many dangerous, outdated and incompetent PHP examples that litter the internet.
