If anyone cares this is how I finally got it to work. It may not be that pretty, but it worked.
display.php just pulls the picture out of the database and slams it to the browser per the ID you give it.
mysql_connect("localhost", "root", "letmein");
$query = "Select picdata from pictures where(ID=" . $ID . ")";
To call a picture up you could reference in any HTML docuemnt this line
or the ID of the picture binary data you want to slam to the browser.
