I have some complex forms that are filled out on my site.

When the user completes the form I need the information to output a secure PDF.

All the information is first stored in MYSQL database (the image images in files).  The paths to the images are stored in the DB.

Is there some software or tutorials that can me accomplish this?

Please let me know if you need more info to answer this question...

You need something that will make the PDF and support encrypting it.  One suggestion that will do this is Encrypt PDF (http://www.verypdf.com/encryptpdf/index.htm).  One tutorial on making the PDF is found at http://www.sitepoint.com/print/generate-pdfs-php/ .
Let me know how this helps.  If you need more details or have a question then just let me know.

I'm glad I could help.  Thanks for the grade, the points and the fun question.
The correction makes a big difference. :)  There is no way to hire anybody through EE.  None of the experts actually work for EE but are all volunteers.  Having said that many experts do offer their a way to contact them in their profile and will welcome a project for hire.  You can't post a question to solicit the service but could email them directly if they provide that info.
The PHP zone would be the best place to look for experts to approach on this.  You could use the Hall of Fame to identify an expert(s) to approach and look at their profile.  Keep in mind that often those who do great contract work aren't #1 on the site.  Often their projects keep them busy. ;)
Good luck and let me know if you have a question or need other help with this.  Keep in mind you can always ask a follow up for more info and experts can normally contribute more than what is in the first post.  Of course if you do have a project, like in this case, then it is best to hire a web programmer, like you are talking about doing.
