SELECT filename FROM dbtable WHERE id = $id

The extraction into $row array (the filename held in $row).

Now for display:

<img src="images/gallery/flowers/<?php echo $row['filename'];?>" />

or if you put everything into php:

echo "<img src=\"images/gallery/flowers/{$row['filename']}\" />";

Hi thanks for the reply but i have my photos stored in a folder inside ignite gallery plugin, so from there how to retrive them..?

I have no idea what you're talking about. Maybe try the Joomla forum.
