hamisht: The file needs to re-named while being uploaded, or after uploading, because someone might upload 'photo1.jpg' and overwrite someone elses 'photo1.jpg'.


I would put all the images in a folder (such as /images) then put each user's images in a subfolder (such as images/15/ or images/10/) then there's no worries with overwriting.

Thanks for that suggestion nate, but I don't want to complicate things any further ;)

Good news though, the renaming is working! yay!

Very snip-happy:

hamisht: this is my page 'uploadimages.php':

  
    $newcatagory = $_POST['newcatagory'];
       
    // RECORD INPUT
    $emailupload = $_POST['emailupload'];
    $description = $_POST['description'];
    $date = $_POST['date'];



Don't forget to mistrust ALL data that comes from the browser - put in some checking / validation / cleansing on the input to ensure that some clown doesn't set the $_POST['newcatagory'] to something like "; drop table catagory; --"

(Hint - mysql_escape_string())

Another option may be to use either an abstraction layer (ADODB) or mysqli commands.

Did I also mention that you should never trust the data from the browser ...
