see code snippet below. I'm not really sure what parts are fixed... the xxxxx in your example, can they all change? ie different domains etc.

if not - this will work. if yes, please be more specific about which parts are fixed and which are not

//H
<?
$string = "http://someplace.somewhere.com/photos/381120275_HWioi-Th.jpg";
preg_match("|.*/photos/(\d*)_(.*)-Th.jpg|",$string,$matches);
 
echo $matches[1]; // outputs 381120275 
echo $matches[2]; // outputs HWioi 
 
?>
