this is the code for paging:

<?php
 mysql_connect("localhost", "root", "1234");
 mysql_select_db("image");

// how many rows to show per page
$rowsPerPage = 20;

// by default we show first page
$pageNum = 1;

// if $_GET['page'] defined, use it as page number
if(isset($_GET['page']))
{
	$pageNum = $_GET['page'];
}

// counting the offset
$offset = ($pageNum - 1) * $rowsPerPage;

$query  = "SELECT val FROM randoms LIMIT $offset, $rowsPerPage";
$result = mysql_query($query) or die('Error, query failed');

// print the random numbers
while($row = mysql_fetch_array($result))
{
	echo $row['val'] . '<br>';
}
echo '<br>';

// how many rows we have in database
$query   = "SELECT COUNT(val) AS numrows FROM randoms";
$result  = mysql_query($query) or die('Error, query failed');
$row     = mysql_fetch_array($result, MYSQL_ASSOC);
$numrows = $row['numrows'];

// how many pages we have when using paging?
$maxPage = ceil($numrows/$rowsPerPage);

// print the link to access each page
$self = $_SERVER['PHP_SELF'];
$nav = '';
for($page = 1; $page <= $maxPage; $page++)
{
	if ($page == $pageNum)
	{
		$nav .= " $page ";   // no need to create a link to current page
	}
	else
	{
		$nav .= " <a href=\"$self?page=$page\">$page</a> ";
	}		
}

// creating previous and next link
// plus the link to go straight to
// the first and last page

if ($pageNum > 1)
{
	$page = $pageNum - 1;
	$prev = " <a href=\"$self?page=$page\">[Prev]</a> ";
	
	$first = " <a href=\"$self?page=1\">[First Page]</a> ";
} 
else
{
	$prev  = '&nbsp;'; // we're on page one, don't print previous link
	$first = '&nbsp;'; // nor the first page link
}

if ($pageNum < $maxPage)
{
	$page = $pageNum + 1;
	$next = " <a href=\"$self?page=$page\">[Next]</a> ";
	
	$last = " <a href=\"$self?page=$maxPage\">[Last Page]</a> ";
} 
else
{
	$next = '&nbsp;'; // we're on the last page, don't print next link
	$last = '&nbsp;'; // nor the last page link
}

// print the navigation link
echo $first . $prev . $nav . $next . $last;

// and close the database connection
