Back end code for image upload to folder

Now lets start a php code. So make file upload.php with the following code in it. We are not creating  a database here because there’s no need in this case. We are simply uploading the picture to the folder without using a database relation. But you can add it and see the further tutorial here.


Now we are done with the code. Just create a folder named uploads in the same directory where you put all these above files. The folder will contain the images which we uploaded. Check that folder after success message.
This code is able to check whether the uploaded file is valid image or not. see the screenshot below.
