Hi Experts:

I have this php html form to add data and upload a image (picture) to the database.  Datatype of the column storing the image is BLOB.  Currently, I can upload only 1 image (picture) per form submission.  Is it possible to upload more than 1 image (picture) using the form.

Here is the code:

<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.1//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml11/DTD/xhtml11.dtd">
<html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml">
<head>

<script type='text/javascript'><!--
function initFlyouts(){initPublishedFlyoutMenus([{"id":"122664640769900158","title":"Library Catalog","url":"index.html"},{"id":"532658225518218983","title":"About the Library","url":"http:\/\/icscborrowinglibrary.com\/aboutlibrary.html"},{"id":"813612181614597800","title":"Ask a Librarian","url":"ask-a-librarian.html"},{"id":"939506420111845331","title":"Support your Library","url":"support-your-library.html"}],'845325556776834118',"<li class='wsite-nav-more'><a href='#'>more...<\/a><\/li>",'',false)}
if (Prototype.Browser.IE) window.onload=initFlyouts; else document.observe('dom:loaded', initFlyouts);

In HTML5 you can add a multiple attribute to allow you to select multiple files. The $_FILES array will have an additional dimension to carry the additional information. You can find more information here.
