Storage and Re-use of Images Using PHP/GD - Part 1 - Conclusion
(Page 3 of 3 )

What we Did in Part 1

We just made our user an image upload form, with which we can submit the information and the image. We also wrote a script that handles the upload. The image is then converted from jpeg, png, bmp or gif to a better usable jpeg of png format and saved. After this step, the information about the image is saved to the database for later use.

You can download the full script we wrote in this article.

Part 2

In part 2 we will build the other half of our image storage system, containing an image search function and an PHP-object to get the image from the database and generate the appropriate img-tag.
