<?php print $sel_product['image_source'];?> /*printing it to make sure it is correct value i get = C:\wamp\www\website\images01-28-06_0014.jpg*/

<?php $ImgValue = $sel_product['image_source']; ?>

store the relative path rather than the absolute path to the image in the database field

for example; if i was storing all my images in a folder called assets and my web pages were in the directory above it store the image path in the db as:


if the image is in the same directory as the web page only store the image name;


in the database

ok i am saving the only the picture name and then going to concatenate that in a new variable like so:

$picture = "C:\wamp\www\website\images\ " . $sel_product['image_source'];

then show the picture:

<img src="<?php print $picture;?> ">

but i am still coming up with the exact same problem as before the selected source is coming up as
<img src="C:%5Cwamp%5Cwww%5Cwebsite%5Cimages%5C%2001-06-06_1731.jpg">

so only concat the images/ part to the filename

any time there is a "/" in my filename it is being replaced by %5C how do i undo this?
