Welcome aboard Nivas!


First of all, what is the error?

second, what are you trying to do?


you don't need to use "header" in the loop, and I also think you are missing the "path". Did you intent to use $path?

if your wanting to make an image from a PHP script, look up the Graphics Development Library or PHP:GD. 
if your wanting to loop a bunch of images (say for an image gallery) I tend to use a for loop unless i'm JOINing multiple tables.




   include "/path/to/file/connect.php";


   $my_que[0] = mysql_query("SELECT * FROM `my_images`");

   for( $i = 0; $i < mysql_num_rows( $my_que[0] ); $i++ )



      $row = mysql_fetch_array( $my_que[0] );

      print "<div><img src=\"/path/to/file/". $row['image_src'] . ".png\" /></div>\n";






don't include a header unless you are using an image creation library it will make the browser think its an image, yet its not so what does the browser do?

apart from the header line of code, it looks ok to me.


perhaps the path to the image is wrong or the image name field in the $row variable is incorrect?

To do what you want, you need two files. One that returns the image data and one that returns the html pointing to the image returning file.

The image returning file should have the header as you do, and ONLY return the content of the file, nothing else whatsoever! To be able to fetch the correct image you need to add the db key to the image in the database file, something like image.php?id=57398, using the $_GET['id'] to fetch the binary data. In the calling file you generate your html as you do, calling the generating file like <img src="image.php?id=57398">
