one of the errors is without the date function that my php echo's error writing image database


That message is obviously useless as it explains nothing about the actual error.


First off, see Pickachu's suggestion and correct your query accordingly.


Second, instead of displaying "error messages" that don't tell you a heck of a lot, use mysql_error() where applicable:


if ( !(mysql_query($query,$link)) ) {

As long as you're editing things, you'll probably find debugging a lot easier if you make the query string readable by getting rid of all that obnoxious concatenation.


$query = "INSERT INTO image ( title, type, name, alt, img, description, date) VALUES ( '$title', '{$_FILES['userFile']['type']}', '{$_FILES['userFile']['name']}', '$alt', '$image', '$description', NOW() )";
