Associating submitted data with image

Thanks everybody for your kind contributions to my tread. The uploaded image is now properly aligned, but form data after submission needs to relate to the image. Like say: profile image and submitted form data for storage and retrieval. Kindly assist, please. Regards.

If you’re only storing one image against each user, I would use the unique id for that user as the image name, whether that’s your TIN, or just the unique id row from the database after you create the user. If you need to store multiple images, there are many options depending on how many images, whether the images are fixed-usage or not.

For context: This topic was split from this one in HTML & CSS:-

But appears to be more a PHP question.
