/*  Class Created by Anirban Nath (India) email :hide@address.com (software programmer , Kaizen tech, Chennai(India) ,expert in ZEND,JOOMLA(CMS+LMS) *
	   This class basically has two function ie; (1) checkfile and (2) fileoperation..*
	   while the former is for secure image uploading and the latter for resizing the image and storing it in Database*
	   whether you can use this code, yes obiously ...but you have to retain the copyright code and credit for author!! *
	   last but not least , iwould like to thank all the authors of this sites , for thier valuable works and code...that inspired me *
 /*for DB connection here iam not using any classes to make it simple clean, you can use DB connection*/
