  2. (1, 'View Sonic LCD', '19" View Sonic Black LCD, with 10 months warranty', 250, 'images/lcd.jpg'),
  3. (2, 'IBM CDROM Drive', 'IBM CDROM Drive', 80, 'images/cdrom-drive.jpg'),
  4. (3, 'Laptop Charger', 'Dell Laptop Charger with 6 months warranty', 50, 'images/charger.jpg'),

the "picture" field stores pictures in database.i have given there VARCHAR(80)
i know for storing pictures we should give BLOB data type.
but tell me whether the above syntax i have written will work or not.
if not what would be the syntax...
