    Default How do I browse for an image to upload ?

    I&#039m currently trying to upload an image as part of a form - which works fine. However using the standard &#039input type=file&#039 this only gives the filename browse. I need to the user to be able to pick an image to upload by being able to view the image, not just the filename. I&#039ve been experimenting with using an iframe and setting it to display the image file - however of course this doesn&#039t work as the value of the input field isn&#039t set until the form is submitted - can anyone help ?
