I have a simple question. How do you set mysql image results as background images. I already know how to display images from a mysql db so know need to explain that process. I also know how to set images as backgrounds using css. However setting mysql results as background images is a different process. I need to know this because I'm creating a image gallery and I don't want people dragging images off the page, thanks in advance.

not sure , it may be possible if the style is on the page (ie in the head> but it wont stop them if they use view background image

Just like you display the result from mysql in <IMG> tags, now insert them as background images.

<element style="background: url(path/file.jpg)">

This will not stop people from copying your images though. In order to show it on a users monitor, it has to be downloaded to their computer. But that is another discussions I guess.
