Photo Upload with text?

Im currently using v1.5, trying to create an app that uploads a photo from an iphone (using the image uploader feature) and also fill in a form to add some text information, so that the data and photo creates a listing on a website. I can do this all in html on a PC browser, but I cannot figure out how to do this in a buzztouch app. I can't find the photo taken on the iphone from an html form. Is it possible to program things so that a user could to click on the form from a web page and launch the image uploader in a buzztouch app?. Or maybe it is possible to add a link on the image uploader that takes me to a form?. Or something else? Im open to any ideas or tips on how this could be achieved please. I've searched the forums but didn't find anything - has anyone done something like this?. Any guidance, tips or advice would be much appreciated.

Flickr is only a good shout if you are making a gallery with captions or the likes. If I understand the question correctly you want to add caption / description to the chosen image in v1.5, correct? I remember a post somewhere from David outlining what to add to the upload script to save and store the data in a text file or DB. Your listing will then query this and return the results formatted by yourself. Have a search for image gallery or image captions you should be able to find the post.

MacApple, you are right about using Flickr, it wasn't part of the plan. I've found this post http://www.buzztouch.com/forum/thread.php?tid=D01FD0B02772B2BA195E6AE Right now (23:25 UK time) this looks complicated, I will give it a go in the morning and see if looks any easier then! Thanks for the feedback and the swift responses.
