Post Automatic Thumbnail code

I have a php form where I can upload 3 things into a database.

1. Image Description
2. Image category
3. Image (the image is uploaded in a folder with a unique random name, and the unique path name is inserted into the


My script generate something like : 3a54b42fa7103570ea1729e17fc9a207.jpg
in my picture folder when I hit the form upload button.

What I need now is a thumbnail version of that image created in the same folder but with a different file name and in

smaller size , something like :

Anyone can help me? I kind of new with php,mysql.

My php code is:


// image directory
$uploadDir = ( $_SERVER['DOCUMENT_ROOT'].'/vitrail_path/photos/' );

if(isset($_POST['upload']) && $_FILES['userfile']['size'] > 0)
$fileName = $_FILES['userfile']['name'];
$tmpName = $_FILES['userfile']['tmp_name'];
$fileSize = $_FILES['userfile']['size'];
$fileType = $_FILES['userfile']['type'];
$description = $_POST['description'];
$categorie = $_POST['categorie'];

// get the file extension first
$ext = substr(strrchr($fileName, "."), 1);

// generate the random file name
$randName = md5(rand() * time());

// unique file name for the upload file
$filePath = $uploadDir . $randName . '.' . $ext;

// move the files to the specified directory with error reporting
$result = move_uploaded_file($tmpName, $filePath);
if (!$result) {
echo "Error uploading file";

if (file_exists(( $_SERVER['DOCUMENT_ROOT'].'/vitrail_path/photos/' ) . $_FILES['userfile']['tmp_name']))
echo $_FILES['userfile']['tmp_name'] . ' already exists. ';

if(!$_POST['description'] | !$_POST['categorie']) {
die('Inscrire une description et une catégorie.');

$fileName = addslashes($fileName);
include 'library/config.php';
include 'library/opendb.php';

$query = "INSERT INTO upload2 (name, size, type, path, description, categorie) ".
"VALUES ('$fileName', '$fileSize', '$fileType', '$filePath', '$description', '$categorie')";

mysql_query($query) or die('Error, query failed');

include 'library/closedb.php';

echo "
File $fileName uploaded
header('Location: upload.php');


And my form code is
<form method="post" enctype="multipart/form-data" name="uploadform">
<table border="0" align = "center">
<tr align="left" valign="top"><td>
<tr align="left" valign="middle" height="10"><td><b><font size="2" face="Georgia, Arial" color="black">Description de

<tr align="left" valign="middle">
<td> </td>
<td> </td>
<tr align="left" valign="middle">
<td><font size="2" face="Georgia, Arial" color="black"><b>Sélection de la photo :</b></font>
