you can do something like this:

$str = "http://www.blahblah.com/pic1.gif|http://www.blahblah.com/pic2.gif";

then use :

$url = explode("|",$str);

read with:

$url[0], $url[1]

$url[0] with have value of http://www.blahblah.com/pic1.gif where as $url[1] will have http://www.blahblah.com/pic2.gif";

Nop... sorry for my unclear question....

I mean it should display like

abcdefg [PIC1] hijklmnop [PIC2] qrstuvwxyz

which [PIC1] is the picture of  http://www.blahblah.com/pic1.gif  
and    [PIC2] is the picture of http://www.blahblah.com/pic2.gif
Show both pictures as picture not just link.

Thanks again
if the $str is contruct by yourself you can actually put in html tag:

$str = "abcdefg <img src='http://www.blahblah.com/pic1.gif'> hijklmnop <img src='http://www.blahblah.com/pic2.gif'> qrstuvwxyz";

when you do

echo $str;

you will see the result that you want.

But it like a webboard with picture.. when use wish to show picture they just put the message and follow by http://www.blahblah.com/pic1.gif  not to <img src="http://www.blahblah.com/pic1.gif ">

When user wish to view their result just show page and this should display picture.

Hi, try this:

$str = "abcdefg http://www.blahblah.com/pic1.gif hijklmnop http://www.blahblah.com/pic2.gif qrstuvwxyz";

$replaced =  preg_replace("#\s((www|http:).*?(jpeg|jpg|gif|bmp|png))\s#is"," <img src=\"$1\"> ",$str);

echo $replaced;
