Hi there, you could grab the whole file name from db, form, etc... strip it
down to the '.jpg' , concatenate $IDNUMBER . $NUMBER OF PICTURE , then
rename it using the combination of $IDNUMBER . $NUMBER OF PICTURE .
$myfile = 'webgraphic.jpg';
$IDNUMBER = 55;
$NUMBEROFPICTURE = 999;
$newfilename = $IDNUMBER . $NUMBEROFPICTURE ;
//grab the dot and the file extension
$myfile = substr($myfile, -4);
$myfile = $newfilename . $myfile;
//upload process follows
