I just got mine to work.. try this

$host = "localhost";
$user = "user";
$base = "database";
$dirself = $_SERVER['PHP_SELF'];
$req = @mysql_connect($host, $user, $pass);
$cnx = @mysql_select_db($base) or die("you f'ed up!");
$ds = date(dmy);
if ($cnx) {
echo '<html>'.
'<head />'.
'<form action="'.$dirself.'" enctype="multipart/form-data" method=post >'.
'Desription<br />'.
'<textarea name=comment></textarea>'.
'<p />'.
'<input type=file name=file id="file">'.
'<input type=hidden name=maxsize value="2400000">'.
'<input type=hidden name=action value="record_insert">'.
'<input type=submit value="submit record">'.

If ($_POST['action'] == 'record_insert')
$size = filesize($_FILES['file']['tmp_name']);
$type = $_FILES['file']['type'];
$name= $ds.$_FILES['file']['name'];
$comment =  $_POST['comment'];
$max = $_POST['maxsize'];
$target_path = $_FILES['file']['tmp_name'];
$handle = fopen($target_path, "r");
$pure = addslashes(fread($handle, filesize($target_path)));
$sql = "INSERT INTO imgdb ( image_name, image_size, image_type, image_desc, image)".
 "VALUES ('$name','$size','$type','$comment','$pure')";
$res = @mysql_query($sql) or die(mysql_error());
If (!$res) {echo "oops I could not upload!";}
} else {
echo mysql_error();

Just make sure that your database has blob type for the image itself. the rest can be modded to allow for what you need in your db.

the other part of the issue that you might have is just making a call to an image tag.

echo '<table><tr><td>';
echo '<img src="pic.jpg">';
echo '</td></tr></table>';

to recall it from the db that i gave an example of is:


if (isset ($_GET['image_id']) )
  $id = intval ($_GET['image_id']);
     $hote = 'localhost';
     $base = 'database';
     $user = 'user'
     $pass = 'PASSWORDDELETED'
     $cnx = mysql_connect ($hote, $user, $pass) or die(mysql_error ());
     $ret = mysql_select_db ($base) or die (mysql_error ());
  $req = "SELECT image_id, image_type, image ".
              "FROM testblob WHERE image_id = ".$id;
  $ret = mysql_query ($req) or die (mysql_error ());
  $col = mysql_fetch_row ($ret);
  if ( !$col[0])
    echo "the id of the picture does not exist";
  ) else
    header ("Content-type : ".$col[1];
    echo $col[2];
  ) else
    echo "the id of the picture is not valid";

to call it simply use <img src="image.php?id=1" alt="web stored image">
