Amazon Simple Storage Service

Amazon Simple Storage Service
I have a stock photo website. It has about 1200 images currently, and they are taking up about 5GB of space on my server. The server is on shared hosting, and I cannot afford a dedicated server until the site has grown much larger.

I signed up for an Amazon S3 account, and I want to use that to store all the images. Right now, when someone uploads an image, the script makes a folder with a number in the /content directory. I would like to make it so that when someone uploads an image, the image is transferred to my S3 account, and when the site is viewed, it pulls the images from there. This will cut down on space and bandwidth usage for my server.

I have already implemented a S3 class in PHP, it contains everything needed to perform the necessary functions, I just need you to make it happen. I have already figured out how to display the images, I just need you to make it upload to the S3 account, and make it delete the images when necessary. Overall you will be editing approx 3-5 PHP files, not a huge job.

The site URL is in the PMB.

Even if you have no experience with Amazon S3, if you are familiar with PHP this job will be easy, since I already have the class set up.
