Shopping Cart Hell

Do you have a question? Post it now! No Registration Necessary.  Now with pictures!

New to php and mysql

Here's my dilemma:
I created a site for a photographer over a year ago using the Joomla
CMS.  His customers login and see their own specific gallery of

Now he wants his customers to be able to order prints online.  I
figured that I could add some code to the php page in the gallery
script that shows the image.  Just some basic options, print size,
quantity, add to cart button...

I wouldn't know how to get that info into a persistent shopping cart
using sessions or cookies.

I don't need help with the checkout process, I'm confident I can
handle that on my own.  Just need some direction with the ordering and
session cart.

Any input is greatly appreciated.

and you have to take that into consideration or you can screw other  
things up.

But why reinvent the wheel?  Just use a shopping cart already made for

You're not an implementation of one of those neural nets are you?
