Hi all,

I have a form which requires multiple upload fields in different parts on the form.

I'm using php, html and javascript on the project.

I need a script for that please.

I would prefer if the after attaching each image you get a preview thumb of it but if it's not possible I'm willing to go without it.

Can anyone help please?

Thanks

Hey,

Try have a look at this:
http://www.uploadify.com/

It mainly uses flash for multiple file uploads but it should have a backup single file uploading in case Flash isn't available.

Cheers!
Chris

I can show you how to upload files, and how to make thumbnails.  This will enable you to upload files and resize them.  You might want to make a few small modifications to keep the uploaded file and change the dimensions of the thumbnail file.
<?php // RAY_upload_and_resize_image.php
date_default_timezone_set('America/Chicago');


// UPLOAD AN IMAGE AND RESIZE IT TO FIT A PREDEFINED SIZE


// A FUNCTION TO DETERMINE IF GD IS AT LEVEL 2 OR MORE
function get_gd_info($display=FALSE)
{

    // IS GD INSTALLED AT ALL?
    if (!function_exists("gd_info"))
    {
        if ($display) echo "<br/>GD NOT INSTALLED\n";
        return FALSE;
    }

    // IF GD IS INSTALLED GET DETAILS
    $gd = gd_info();

    // IF DISPLAY IS REQUESTED, PRINT DETAILS
    if ($display)
    {
        echo "<br/>GD DETAILS:\n";
        foreach ($gd as $key => $value)
        {
            if ($value === TRUE)  $value = 'YES';
            if ($value === FALSE) $value = 'NO';
            echo "<br/>$key = $value \n";
        }
    }

    // RETURN THE VERSION NUMBER
    $gd_version = preg_replace('/[^0-9\.]/', '', $gd["GD Version"]);
    return $gd_version;
}


// A FUNCTION TO MAKE AN IMAGE INTO THE RIGHT WIDTH FOR PAGE DISPLAY
// WILL WORK IF GD2 NOT INSTALLED, BUT WILL MAKE BETTER IMAGES WITH GD2
// INPUT IS THE IMAGE FILE NAME, OUTPUT IS AN IMAGE RESOURCE, OR FALSE IF NO RESIZE NEEDED

    $source = imagecreatefromjpeg("$image");

    // GET THE X AND Y DIMENSIONS
    $imageX = imagesx($source);
    $imageY = imagesy($source);

    // IF NO RESIZING IS NEEDED
    if ($imageX <= $width)

    }

    // THE WIDTH IS TOO GREAT - MUST RESIZE
    $tnailX = $width;
    $tnailY = (int) (($tnailX * $imageY) / $imageX );

    if ($gdv >= 2)
