  my effort:

          // this gets the auto_increment primary key of the most recent
          if (($image != 'none') && ($image != '')) {
            $imageid = mysql_insert_id();

          // save image to photos directory
            $image_location =".$imageurl".$imageid.".gif";
            move_uploaded_file($image, $image_location);
          else {
            $imagefilename = $image;


the logic for adding a new course should work like this:

- form displayed to user
- user fills in form
- form checked for validity
- record created in database
- IF image uploaded
  - check image is valid
  - obtain primary key (mysql_insert_id())
  - move_uploaded_file


if you want to send me your bowtechAdd.php file offlist, i'll have a
look at it for you.
