upload and rotate multiple pictures for webapp

Hi. I'm looking for some software (Idealy in PHP, but if not that could be alright too) to intigrate into a web application. The use of the software would be to upload a collection of pictures (Maybe a whole directory, or selecting multiple files from a list) then presenting all the pictures as a thumb nails with the ability to rename, and rotate them. After pressing submit it will do the requested work and put them all in the database. I've attached a sketch of what it might look like.

Thank you for any suggestions,

Well you did say "any suggestions" so here's mine:

Take a look at kim here:

It's not php, it's a R-click service menu extension for KDE that does awesome things to images, or groups of images. It is just a front-end to some well-commented shell scripts, so it is easy to understand how it all works and modify to your liking. I am sure you could adapt parts of it to work with php to achieve what you need.

kim requires the package imagemagick which has the tools you'll need to do what you want.

That is a pretty nifty app. Maybe I could figure out how to write a different front end and be off. Thank you very much.
