how to call image files - PHP - HTML & CSS

Ok - so i want to take my "project" to the next step. i hope. I currently have a dynamic table, that is populated by MySQL database, using PHP. this table just holds text URL's etc. I would like to be able to display images as my next step, but not sure where to start. I presume i simply hold file locations in a field, which points to my image file on the host server. How do i call this into my table!?? Have i got the wrong end of the stick? Any help would be great. Ta Dave...

    Default Re: how to call image files - PHP

    Put the image's filename into the database.

    Use it in the HTML code on the page, e.g.,

    <img src="/images/formula1/redcars/<?php filename ?>"....

    That way, when your path changes, you can change it in the HTML and not in
    the database.
