Do i have to create a form on the page first with 5 file fields
If you need to have individual file fields, you´d better create the form first (using the Insert or Update Record wizard), set the desired columns to be represented as file upload fields, and - after the form has been created - attach individual "Upload and Resize image" server behaviours for each file upload field.
Thank you for your reply and also for the great tutorial site you run which has helped me quite a lot with several things.
ok, so i am maybe a little confused here, so what is the multiple image uploader for if not for uploading multiple images, and how does it give you the option to select more than one file or is it that you can't use it when inserting the image file into a database?
Please forgive my ignornace again, i can see when i have tried using the multiple image upload thatit puts a text link called upload, what is that for because it doesn't seem to do anything on the page i have tried it on?
Also, to mention that these image names are not going into different columns in the database they are in the same column just a new record for each image file name, so when i try to use or add another image upload and resize trigger it says i can't because there is already exists a upload and resize image using the transaction field.
Basically i have created using the insert record a form with one file field and then added 4 more file fields and named them as image2, image3 and so on, then tried attach a upload and resize to each one.
Obviously this is wrong lol

it´s, guess what, for uploading multiple images :-) I just assumed you wanted additional file upload fields, what´s not supported by ADDT´s Multiple Image Uploader, because this feature is based on a Flash Multiple File Upload widget and not regular HTML file upload fields at all.

You´ll only get to see this link in browsers which don´t have the Flash plugin installed -- in this case the visitor will at least be able to upload single files. As cool as the Flash based Multiple File Upload widget is, this strength is also a possible weakness at the same time, because if you´re not sure if your website visitors all do have the Flash Plugin installed, you might as well give them 5 HTML file upload fields which - of course - have to point to individual database table columns.
