    Image Upload with preview

    I've been searching for an image upload script that shows previews of what's about to be uploaded (my client is making photo gifts) and I'm not having much success. I've narrowed it down to probably using some combination of javascript, jquery, and/or ajax. Does anyone here know of something like this?

    I have found this image uploader but I'm not sure it's the right solution.

    I see that this image uploader is created with Java so I do not recommend you to use it for general Web development - most likely, many of your users cannot use it.

    With JavaScript you cannot show the preview of uploaded image because this requires accessing user files from a web page which is not allowed. So you can upload files and only then show the preview so user decide whether to keep that file or cancel it (something like Attachment functionality in Gmail works).
    I'm creating trouble-free Apache, PHP, MySQL installer, WITSuite,
    and use it to setup my development environment.
    Demo, support, contact. Questions?

    Okay, I see your point. Do you know of a script that I could check out? I've looked at the way Craigslist allows photo uploads and wonder if it's similar to what you're talking about...
