How do I link digital camera images to an external / physical ticket system?

I was at a sporting event recently and they had people going around taking pictures and handing out slips/tickets that would enable the person in the picture to go on line and look up (and presumably purchase) their picture later.  How is that done?  How does the picture get linked / synced with a physical piece of paper or ticket system of sorts?  I have a need to do something similar - a photo booth at an event.  We want people to be able to have their picture taken and fill out a form.  We need to somehow associate the picture with an external reference.  Does this make sense?  Any tips?

Just join a  image hosting, free photo sharing and video sharing site.
Upload your photos, host your videos, and share them.
Once you join you can learn how it is done.

Try: photobucket

Well either they just add the memory stick SD Micro memory card or USB cable to their PC
 and upload off the camera only takes a minute.
then when ordered on their web site they simply print it out and mail to the recipient that has paid for it.
I would guess here that they upload these to their personal web space/ preview or thumbnails were visible.
You would also need to include some type of eftpos paying method.
What type of cameras did they use??some steps here

The ticket system is done by you naming the photo the same as the ticket when you upload it.
This links the ticket holder to the photo.
Once you join an image hosting site you can learn how it is done.

Give your grad a cloud of their own!

With up to 8TB of storage, give your favorite graduate their own personal cloud to centralize all their photos, videos and music in one safe place. They can save, sync and share all their stuff, and automatic photo backup helps free up space on their smartphone and tablet.

Thanks for giving it a look and trying to help.  It isn't exactly what I was looking for, but I do appreciate the time you took to try.

Please re-consider the "C" grade as it downgrades our "EE" status.
