You may want to influence $UploadPrefixFmt. Its default is '/$Group',
and you want something like '/$Group/images'. However, that would
affect all uploads. So, you need a way to tell it when to affect this
variable, and when to remain silent.

Perhaps interject a little subroutine? What I've coded below is a
rough draft. What I'm doing is interjecting a checksum routine before
the actual uploading of the page. I'm using the fact that PmWiki
already tracks which extensions are images via a fairly universal
standard--so I won't hardcode.

So, the routine extracts the extension, checks against the known image
formats, then appends the "image" subdirectory to UploadPrefixFmt when
we have a recognized image format.

    $HandleActions['postupload'] = 'PrefixImages'; #Defaults to

    function PrefixImages($p, $a='upload') {
        global $UploadExts, $UploadPrefixFmt
        $upname = $_REQUEST['upname'];
        if ($upname=='') {
            $uploadfile = $_FILES['uploadfile'];
            $upname=$uploadfile['name']; }

        $ext = split('.', $upname);
        $xtype = split('/', $UploadExts[$ext[-1]]);
        if ($xtype[0] == 'image') $UploadPrefixFmt .= '/images';
        HandlePostUpload($p, $a); } # Returning the fish to the stream.
