im trying to allow a user to add a picture via a web page and store it in the database. how do i go about letting a user insert a piture on a web page.
First you'll need a way to let the user upload the image. See the ASPFAQ's link above for that. Second don't store the image in the db but rather the path. You'll see how to do that once you get the upload feature done.
Check with your host to see if you have software on your server you can use... for instance, mine has ASP Upload which was very easy to learn to use.
