I am building a website that uses php5 and mysql database. I want to upload images alongside other information. To get other information into the table of the database, this I can do very well, but to upload and display the images alongside other information(which may be done online by the users), I am finding very difficult.

Can someone please help me solve this?

Uploading images to a table ? 99% of the people who upload an image wouldn't upload it to the table. Instead, they upload the image to the filesystem and insert the path of the image to the table. Fetching the blob data from the database just adds on to the server load. But if you want to insert an image to a table, you can check this site.

Here is a link for some working examples for a book called PHP Solutions by Friends Of Ed

You'll have to sift through the zip file for the scripts for uploading images and resizing them. I think it'll be around chapter 8 or so. VERY helpful.

P.S. If you have no knowledge of PHP then you might want to get the book. It's very descriptive which makes for easy learning.
