Uploading Images with Captions

Easy and Efficient with Thumbnail Preview

I want to make an image upload page that allows users to upload images and add captions in a nice neat way like you can on photobucket.com. It would also be nice if each image could be sent to a server side script that uploads the file and loads a thumbnail / preview of the image in an iframe. Any help or sample code you can provide would be much appreciated.

you really need to upload images etc. with a sever side script. i don't think javascript will help you here because i don't think you can submit files using ajax (correct me if you can).

Sure you can upload files with AJAX, by passing the information to a serverside script - but it's not simple and it requires configuration modifications to the firefox brower ;-)

But putting that aside, the way to do this for your particular interest is the old hidden iframe method and getting your form to post to the iframe and then get the iframe to upload the file and then call the required javascript code to display the newly uploaded image.

Good luck.
