Pictures in MySQL

Hey all,
I'm currently redesigning a website that a friend and I started about a year
ago. It is a daily surf report so when choosing the best script/language to
use for the new design, I found that a mixture of PHP and MySQL would be a
good idea. I have currently set up OmniHTTPd and installed MySQL and PHP
onto my homeserver. I want the site to be set up as follows:

1- I add the report, date and pictures (and amount of pictures possibly...)
to the site through an input form on a secret webpage
2- Visitor enters website and sees the latest report
3- The latest report features the report as well as 2 pictures
4- The visitor can see more pictures by clicking a link which takes the user
to an identical page except with the new pictures (Note. amount of pictures
varies day-to-day)
5- When the user gets to the last 2 pictures, the link to see more pictures
6- The visitor can see past reports by clicking a link which takes them to a
calendar where they can chose the day they want to review

So after setting up the website, the only thing I have to do is the first
step with the rest being handled automatically. Any ideas on how I should do
this? (Note. I can do steps 1, 2 and 3 and I am not too concerned with step
6 yet since I could probably just find a script which could do this for me)

THANK YOU to all those who help me on this one,
- MySQL Newbie (Jake)

Please help me understand the big picture of allowing users to upload pictures and keep them separate and tied to their record in the database. I want the whole thing automated and I'm just trying to get my arms around what all is entailed. Each user will upload about 20 - 100 pictures and each will be related to a different database record. I see the process in general as this:

Hi guys, i have lots of data for products (with different categories) and pictures that i would need it entered into a database on the website. How would i go about doing so? i was thinking about an excel sheet with each category as a sheet but i have no idea what to do about the pictures that will go with each product, (since i would not want the pictures in the mysql database.) any ideas?

Hello I am working on an applicaion that shows several pictures on a webpage. These pictures are saved in a MySQL DB as BLOB. I noticed, that the web server suffers in its performance by printing the pictures. Let's say there are 20 pictures to show, there also are 20 queries to do. This is the way I am doing it up to now: index.php <?php

Hi All, I have a web site I am developing, and have a question. I would like members to be able to upload pictures. Do you think they should be saved as individual files or should they be put in an MySQL database? Which would you recommend, and do you have any sample code for accomplishing this? Ciao . . .

I am writing my own family photo sharing site that I hope to take public (like so many others). Anyway, currently, when the user uploads a picture, I store the picture outside my htdocs folder and record the image details in a MySQB db. When you browse the picture, I read the record and build the image by sending an image/jpeg header. Seems to work but I am a little disappointed with performance. Granted I am running on a really old...
