How To Allow Image Upload Through Form?

    Hi

    I'm looking for the way to allow people to upload several images through an (existing) form.

    Let's say this is my form:

    <form id="form1" name="form1" method="post" action="result.php">
      <label>Name:
      <input name="name" type="text" id="name" />
      </label>
      <p>
        <label>Email:
        <input name="email" type="text" id="email" />
        </label>
      </p>
      <p>
        <input type="submit" name="Submit" value="Submit" />
      </p>
    </form>
    
    Code (markup):
    And this is the code of the output page:

    <p>Name: <?PHP echo $_POST["name"];?></p>
    <p>Email: <?PHP echo $_POST["email"];?></p>
    <p>Show Pic 1: ?????</p>
    <p>Show Pic 2: ?????</p>
    <p>Show Pic 3: ?????</p>
    PHP:

    How can I add several fields to the form that allow people to browse their machine for a file and make sure the pics appear on the output page?

    Your form will be something like this:

    
    <form action="result.php" method="post" enctype="multipart/form-data" name="form1" id="form1">
      <label>Name:
      <input name="name" type="text" id="name" />
      </label>
      <p>
        <label>Email:
        <input name="email" type="text" id="email" />
    </label>
      </p>
      <p>
        <label>File 1:
        <input name="file1" type="file" id="file1"> 
        </label>
      </p>
      <p>
        <label>File 2:
        <input name="file2" type="file" id="file2"> 
        </label>
      </p>
      <p>
        <label>File 3:
        <input name="file3" type="file" id="file3"> 
        </label>
      </p>
      <p>
        <input type="submit" name="Submit" value="Submit" />
      </p>
    </form>
    
    PHP:
    Output page will be something like:

    
    <?php
    	$file1 = $_FILES['file1']['name'];
    	$file2 = $_FILES['file2']['name'];
    	$file3 = $_FILES['file3']['name'];
    	move_uploaded_file($_FILES['file1']['tmp_name'],'files/'.$_FILES['file1']['name']);
    	move_uploaded_file($_FILES['file2']['tmp_name'],'files/'.$_FILES['file2']['name']);
    	move_uploaded_file($_FILES['file3']['tmp_name'],'files/'.$_FILES['file3']['name']);
    ?>
    <p>Name: <?PHP echo $_POST["name"];?></p>
    <p>Email: <?PHP echo $_POST["email"];?></p>
    <p>Show Pic 1: http://sitename.com/files/<?=$file1;?></p>
    <p>Show Pic 2: http://sitename.com/files/<?=$file2;?></p>
    <p>Show Pic 3: http://sitename.com/files/<?=$file3;?></p>
    
    PHP:
    I am skipping file verification (certain extensions,size,name, etc..).

    Peace,
