Upload Large Photos


#1

Hello! I’m trying to learn how to allow others to upload photos to a private directory. I want to only allow certain file types (to help reduce viruses). And a private directory so I can review the photos before posting them.
Thanks in advance.
It’s for a swim team website: http://www.jenisonaquatics.org
Looking for suggestions for improvements!

Your going to want to do it via html/PHP. You can specify size, extensions, etc. If you have used PHP before this isn’t a big deal.

Here is a link to the PHP documentation.
http://www.php.net/manual/en/features.file-upload.php

if you haven’t used PHP You may want to look at one of the Photo management systems like Coppermine (Which I use for baby pictures, but there are several) to help manage the photos.
