Default mak upload file secure for public usage

$target_path = "../images/gallery/";
$target_path = $target_path . basename( $_FILES['filename']['name']); 

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

$filename = basename( $_FILES['filename']['name']);
Form element:
<input type="file" name="filename" id="filename" class="textbox" size="40">
I am looking to make my code as secure as possible, it's basically taking a image from the form field and moving it to a directory on the server. I would also like to check what the file type is - as i'm only wanting to allow gif, png, jpg, bmp etc......

I know that the code isn't safe enough to put up live at the moment.......
