Re: php, postgresql and graphical images

Hi Dave and thanks for advice.

You show in your example how to create an html file containing only one picture. How do you insert multiple graphical images into a "mixed" document containing text and graphical images? Do I still have to save bytea data into a temporary file (how?) and than get in with <img> tag?

Sorry for stupid questions :-)


Are there any other ways to export images from the database?

Hi Mike,

I store them in bytea columns, along with their mimetype, then use a
script like:


require "db.php";

$sql = "SELECT image_data, image_mimetype FROM images where id = " .

$res = pg_query($GLOBALS['db'], $sql);

if (pg_numrows($res) != 1)
  header("HTTP/1.0 404 Not Found");

$image = pg_unescape_bytea(pg_result($res, 0, 0));
$mimetype = pg_result($res, 0, 1);

header("Expires: " . date("D, j M Y H:i:s", time() + (86400)) . " UTC");
header("Cache-Control: Public");
header("Pragma: Public");

header("Content-Type: " . $mimetype);
echo $image;


I should really rewrite that to use a parameterized query, but you get
the idea :-)
