Hi Experts,

I am fairly new to this...

I have got this php script from http://www.webmotionuk.co.uk/php-jquery-image-upload-and-crop/

I have made some modifications to the form at the bottom of the attached file.

I would like to do the following...

1) generate a unique id in the unique id field
2) upload the form results to 'gallery' table
3) rename and upload the image with the 'unqiue id' as the filename

can any one help me please! im tearing my hair out!

This is really three questions.  I doubt if I can work on your code but here are some ideas that may help you get started.

1.  The PHP.net web site has good instructions that teach how to upload an image and information from a form.

2. You can generate a unique name by using the md5() digest of the image file.  You might also associate it with the date and time, or the client who uploaded the file.

3. After the file is uploaded and the unique name is generated, you need to put it some place for permanent storage.

Thanks for the points - it sounds like an interesting application.  There are a lot of moving parts here, but if you go at it one step at a time you'll get great results. ~Ray
