    storing images in mysql

    hi all,
    i want to store an image in MYSQL database.please tell me whether the below sql syntax i have written is correct or not.
    Code:
    CREATE TABLE IF NOT EXISTS `products`(
      `serial` int(11) NOT NULL auto_increment,
      `name` varchar(20) collate latin1_general_ci NOT NULL,
      `description` varchar(255) collate latin1_general_ci NOT NULL,
      `price` float NOT NULL,
      `picture` varchar(80) collate latin1_general_ci NOT NULL,
      PRIMARY KEY(`serial`)
    ) ENGINE=MyISAM  DEFAULT CHARSET=latin1 COLLATE=latin1_general_ci AUTO_INCREMENT=7;
    and i have inserted the values for the above table also.
    below is the one.....
    Code:
    INSERT INTO `products` (`serial`, `name`, `description`, `price`, `picture`) VALUES
    (1, 'View Sonic LCD', '19" View Sonic Black LCD, with 10 months warranty', 250, 'images/lcd.jpg'),
    (2, 'IBM CDROM Drive', 'IBM CDROM Drive', 80, 'images/cdrom-drive.jpg'),
    (3, 'Laptop Charger', 'Dell Laptop Charger with 6 months warranty', 50, 'images/charger.jpg'),
    (4, 'Seagate Hard Drive', '80 GB Seagate Hard Drive in 10 months warranty', 40, 'images/hard-drive.jpg'),
    (5, 'Atech Mouse', 'Black colored laser mouse. No warranty', 5, 'images/mouse.jpg'),
    (6, 'Nokia 5800', 'Nokia 5800 XpressMusic is a mobile device with 3.2" widescreen display brings photos, video clips and web content to life', 299, 'images/mobile.jpg');
    the "picture" field stores pictures in database.i have given there VARCHAR(80)
    i know for storing pictures we should give BLOB data type.
    but tell me whether the above syntax i have written will work or not.
    if not what would be the syntax...
