If you have phpmyadmin then just go in and add your column with that file as teh default value.

If you HAVE to do it through php then..

$query = mysql_query("ALTER TABLE `image` ADD `im` VARCHAR( 255 ) DEFAULT 'image.jpg' NOT NULL ");

now varchar limits you to 255 characters - if you need more then use teh text datatype; NOTE you cannot set a default value for text type so you will have to do and extra update after.

PS if that fails it will be down to the privilages you have on teh database
