Blog Images and Resources

So I making a php blog platform and I'm wondering how to deal with images and stuff like that in MVC Php. I'm storing each blog post in a db and each has a title pub_date content etc. but how do i go about putting an image? I get that I could just write it as <img src=""> but where do I keep the photo in my project. Each post doesnt have its own folder with resources? Thanks

Pretty much you don't store it in the database unless it is a blob. The trick is the put it in a directory on the web host . Just look at the docs for this function move_uploaded_file()
