$_FILES is a superglobal variable in PHP. It consists of 5 variable:

  •  $_FILES[‘file’][‘tmp_name’] – the uploaded file in the temporary directory on the web server.
  •   $_FILES[‘file’][‘name’] – the name of the file which is uploaded.
  •   $_FILES[‘file’][‘size’]-the size of the uploaded file.
  •   $_FILES[‘file’][‘type’]-the MIME type of the uploaded file.
  •   $_FILES[‘file’][‘error’]-the error will be shown.                                                                                        
Step 1: Create a form. While creating a form some rules must be follow:
  •   The form must uses a method=”post”.
  •   The form also need the attribute: enctype =”multipart/form-data”. It specifies which content is to be used while submitting the form.
  •   NOTE: In <input> tag “file” must be given.
<html>


   <body>



      <form action=”image.php” method="POST" enctype="multipart/form-data">

         <input type="file" name="image" />

         <input type="submit" name="submit"/>

      </form>



   </body>

</html>


 Step 2: Create image.php


<?php

if(isset($_POST["submit"]))

{

move_uploaded_file($_FILES["image"]["tmp_name"],"../user/".$_FILES["image"]["name"]);

?> // upload the file in user folder.

 <img src="<?php echo $_FILES["image"]["name"];?>" width="300px" height="200px">//preview your image
