Alrighty,
I'm following the sample code that the CI documentation provides.

My view is spitting out an array appropriately, and now what I'm interested in is the file name that just uploaded:

[file_name] => mypic.jpg

So, into the image manipulation class...
Code:
$config['image_library'] = 'gd2';
$config['source_image'] = '/path/to/image/mypic.jpg';
$config['create_thumb'] = TRUE;
$config['maintain_ratio'] = TRUE;
$config['width'] = 75;
$config['height'] = 50;

$this->load->library('image_lib', $config);

$this->image_lib->resize();

I need the source_image to be the image I just uploaded.

So, I tried this script:

$config['source_image'] = './uploads/'{what goes here?}

I'm not quite sure what to append on to the end of it so that it grabs the file name of the file I just uploaded....

Thanks for the help Smile

Let me re-ask in an easier question Smile

how do I get the file_name out of this code:

Code:
$data = array('upload_data' => $this->upload->data());

According to the user guide the function
Code:
$this->upload->data()
serves the data of the uploaded file, so you should get the
filename by:
Code:
$filename_just_uploaded = $data['file_name'];

referring to your posted line:
Code:
$data = array('upload_data' => $this->upload->data());

Hope that work for you ..
