Pulling images out of a database - Macromedia Dreamweaver

Andre: Don't store the images. Store the image names and just upload the images. Link to them using the image name. There are extensions availlable that allow one to upload images, depending on the server model desired. I assume if you are using an Access database that you are also using ASP? Check the ASPUpload or PureASPUpload extensions (the latter is from [url]http://www.dmxzone.com[/url], and I don't remember where the former is from). -- Murray --- ICQ 71997575 Team Macromedia Volunteer for Dreamweaver MX (If you *MUST* email me, don't LAUGH when you do so!) ================== [url]news://forums.macromedia.com/macromedia.dreamweaver[/url] - THE BEST WAY ...

    Murray,

    Yes, I am using ASP JavaScript for server service. So, if I understood it correctly, all I have to do
    is store the path to the images. Great!

    Thanks a lot,
    - Andre

    Andre:

    Don't store the path. Store the image name. Use the path in the LINK to
    the image on the page. That way if you move things around in the site, you
    won't have to change EVERY ENTRY in the database.
