Image POST php slug

I'm trying to make a slug name to image while upload, i was testing with

str_replace
but it doesn't work.

$_FILES['imgProfile']['name'] = str_replace("í", "i", $_FILES['imgProfile']['name']);


it returns something like:
i?magen.png
and doesn't upload the image.

I tried with this function and works, but removes the file extension.

function slugify($text)
{
// replace non letter or digits by -
$text = preg_replace('~[^\pL\d]+~u', '-', $text);

// transliterate
$text = iconv('utf-8', 'us-ascii//TRANSLIT', $text);

// remove unwanted characters
$text = preg_replace('~[^-\w]+~', '', $text);

// trim
$text = trim($text, '-');

// remove duplicate -
$text = preg_replace('~-+~', '-', $text);

// lowercase
$text = strtolower($text);

if (empty($text)) {
return 'n-a';
}

return $text;
}


I only need to remove
blank spaces
with
-
and characters like
á,é,í,ó,ú
with
a,e,i,o,u


If the file name is:
"prueba para Guardar ímagen ñueva.png"


it must be:
"prueba-para-guardar-imagen-nueva.png"


Thanks!

Answer

For your desired behavior you need to add to first row \.

// replace non letter or digits by -
$text = preg_replace('~[^\pL\d\.]+~u', '-', $text);

and for third row too \.

// remove unwanted characters
$text = preg_replace('~[^-\w\.]+~', '', $text);
