I am trying to create a webform that has 4 upload field. I want to have the uploaded file email to me with phpmailer. I need to know how to validate that the uploaded files are images, attached via phpmailer and send to an email address. I found the below code that will move the file to a folder but I want to attached the files to email without moving them. Is that possible and how do I do it? Any help will be much appreciated.

PHP Code:
$target_path "uploads/";

$target_path $target_path basename$_FILES['uploadedfile']['name']); 

if(
move_uploaded_file($_FILES['uploadedfile']['tmp_name'], $target_path)) {
    echo 
"The file ".  basename$_FILES['uploadedfile']['name']). 
    
" has been uploaded";
} else{
    echo 
"There was an error uploading the file, please try again!";
}
$mail->AddAttachment($target_path);
