Uploading images through the record insertion form. Possible?

Was wondering if Dreamweaver has the functionality available to allow dynamic uploads of images through a record insertion form into a Database(MySQL)?  I have looked around the web a bit, and it seems that to do what I want to do, I have to create a seperate folder for the images and only put the filenames in the database, and then write some PHP manually to get the filenames to call the images.

Before I start to try to learn some PHP, I just thought I'd ask in this forum to ensure there isn't an easier way to do this on Dreamweaver. Being lazy and not smart means I've been putting off programming for as long as possible. Can I put it off any longer?

Check out these extensions for Dreamweaver, I use the ASP version and it works beautifully!




Good luck, hope this helps!
