the best way is not to store it in the database itself. instead, have php uplod the image to the server, and then store the path to the image in the database

I think you can use this following code for uploading an image.

// Where the file is going to be placed 

$target_path = "imag/";

$target_path = $target_path . basename( $_FILES['uploadedfile']['name']); 

if(move_uploaded_file($_FILES['uploadedfile']['tmp_name'], $target_path)) {
    echo "The file ".  basename( $_FILES['uploadedfile']['name']). 
    " has been uploaded";
} else{
    echo "There was an error uploading the file, please try again!";

$sql="insert into photos (path) values('$f')";
echo "saved";
<form enctype="multipart/form-data" action="uploader.php" method="POST" name="form1" ">
<input type="hidden" name="MAX_FILE_SIZE" value="100000" />
Choose a file to upload: <input name="uploadedfile" type="file" /><br />
<input name="upload" type="submit" id="upload" onclick="return val();" value="Upload File" />
