Download images (not just display them on a web page) from Blob


Recommended Posts

I have stored images on mysql using blob. I want to download the images back to my computer in their original format (Not just displaying them on the web page). How do I do this ? The script for displaying the images on the web page is shown below. How can I modify this code to directly download the images back to my computer ?

 

<?php
$link=mysql_connect("localhost","root","");
if(!$link)
{
  die("could not connect:".mysql_error());
}
mysql_select_db("media",$link);
$que="select imageBlob from images where imageId=10"; //imageBlob- name of the blob data type field in mysql.
$ret=mysql_query($que)or die("Invalid query: " . mysql_error());
header("Content-type: image/jpeg");
echo mysql_result($ret, 0);
mysql_close($link);
?>

You should use the force http header commend for content disposition

 

<?php
$link=mysql_connect("localhost","root","");
if(!$link)
   {
      die("could not connect:".mysql_error());
   }
   mysql_select_db("media",$link);
   $que="select imageBlob from images where imageId=10";
   $ret=mysql_query($que)or die("Invalid query: " . mysql_error());
   $data = mysql_result($ret, 0);
   header("Content-type: image/jpeg");
   header('Content-Disposition: attachment; filename="image.jpg"');
   header('Content-Length: '.strlen($data));

   echo $data;
   mysql_close($link);
?>

 

should work fine
