How to upload a image in data base through codeigniter

The same as regular php.
Have a form to upload it to the server and store it as a blob in the database.

If you want to store an image in the database you should only store the filename not the whole image.

Upload the image to a directory and then store the filename in the database.

BTW, totally agree with InsiteFX. There are several disadvantages and no real advantages to storing images in the db. Such as size/maintainability of database and increased memory needed for the queries carrying the blob data.
