Problem is there isnt always four picture files, sometimes its 3, maybe 1,2 or even none. Doesnt your loop assume there is always going to be all four image files?

Also I do believe it does keep those upto 4 image files in RAM for the next page to be completed. This is the first page to list items where they upload the images, after image upload is done they go on to the item listing form, where they choose thier category and it isnt until they submit the next page do these images get assigned thier item number and appropiate destination in the file tree.
Also, the script use to have the "use strict;" at the top of all the files, about 2 years ago when I moved the site to the dedicated server the hosting company (godaddy) told me I had to change it to "use Carp;" to work on thier systems. It worked fine for two years until last week when these problems started.
