I found the answer, For those who are looking for the same thing here is how I did it. You should not consider uploading images to the database instead you can store the name of the uploaded file in your database and then retrieve the file name and use it where ever you want to display the image.

HTML CODE

<input type="file" name="imageUpload" id="imageUpload">

PHP CODE

if(isset($_POST['submit'])) {

    //Process the image that is uploaded by the user

    $target_dir = "uploads/";
    $target_file = $target_dir . basename($_FILES["imageUpload"]["name"]);
    $uploadOk = 1;
    $imageFileType = pathinfo($target_file,PATHINFO_EXTENSION);

    if (move_uploaded_file($_FILES["imageUpload"]["tmp_name"], $target_file)) {
        echo "The file ". basename( $_FILES["imageUpload"]["name"]). " has been uploaded.";
    } else {
        echo "Sorry, there was an error uploading your file.";
    }

    $image=basename( $_FILES["imageUpload"]["name"],".jpg"); // used to store the filename in a variable

    //storind the data in your database
    $query= "INSERT INTO items VALUES ('$id','$title','$description','$price','$value','$contact','$image')";
    mysql_query($query);

    require('heading.php');
    echo "Your add has been submited, you will be redirected to your account page in 3 seconds....";
    header( "Refresh:3; url=account.php", true, 303);
}

CODE TO DISPLAY THE IMAGE

while($row = mysql_fetch_row($result)) {
    echo "<tr>";
    echo "<td><img src='uploads/$row[6].jpg' height='150px' width='300px'></td>";
    echo "</tr>\n";
}
