How Can I Create A Website That Allows Users To Upload Pictures To It?

I want to create a site that allows users to upload a file to my server so that I can have the original size and work with it. Examples:

www.kodakgallery.com (http://www.kodakgallery.com)
www.shutterfly.com (http://www.shutterfly.com)

I read somewhere that this is PHP script related, but I'm not sure. Is this pretty complicated to do? Do I need some other software?

Any help will be greatly appreciated! Thank you!!

What is your knowledge of coding?

For a novice coder this is not straight forward. You will need to learn a scripting language like PHP.

There are some great tutorials on this site that will get you started. I suggest that you start here.....


Good luck, regards

I am not great with coding, so I will take a look at the tutorials. Do they have a specific tutorial on scripting for what am I trying to do?

Thank you!

You will most likely use php with mysql. do a google search for uploading files using php should come up with some. But if you have no knowledge of php you should check out the php tutorials here to get some basic understanding.

Also there are some DW Extensions that can help you accomplish what you want. However, you would have pay for them. Google for Dw Extensions File Uploader for PHP or something like that.

That would be qthe quick and dirty way to go about it.
