how can I load a picture in a img tag from bytea field, using php? I´m using postgresql database

What I have tried:

// Connect to the database
$con_qupos = pg_connect('host= dbname=dbqupos user=postgres password=12345') or die(pg_last_error());

// Get the bytea data
$res = pg_query('select foto from "schSuperCristian".articulo_foto where codigo_referencia='."'8711600305960'");
$raw = pg_fetch_result($res, 'foto');

// Convert to binary and send to the browser
header('Content-type: image/jpeg');
echo pg_unescape_bytea($raw);
