You can store them with comma separated...
And retrieve them with implode and explode functions...
And tel me , by which reason you are trying to store multiple image paths into single field...

thank you shanti,

Well i have 3 products but each product has different colors

- Product1 (red,blue,yellow)
- Product2 (red,blue,silver,orange)
- Product3 (red,blue,black)

so i have the pic for each MAIN product, displaying right but i have this little boxes with the other pics next to it and i want the user to be able to click on those little boxes with the different pics in their colors so when they click on it the MAIN pic will change

i end it up doing for each color a field in my table :( i would like to know if is possible to have,

i.e. product

MySQL Table:


Product1_red.jpg, Product1_blue.jpg, Product1_yellow.jpg

sorry for my lingo i am a young programmer

yes, save colors_pic with comma separated...and retrieve them appropriately...

The implode() function takes an already existing array as
it's argument, and concatenates the contents of
each element in the array into a string.

where as explode() function performs reverse to implode()
function. It splits the string into items by a
delimiter, such as a dash, ampersand, space and places each
item into a new array.

thank you so much for your time, really i appreciate.
