Hey Rizwan,
I think what you are looking for, is the Media Service. So you can easily check if a product image/file exists and if necessary upload a new one.
Creating the correct paths takes over the service for you.

Create a folder via SFTP/FTP, e.g. “pdf”, “upload” or what ever.

Here is a small example for u:

$mediaService = Shopware()->Container()->get('shopware_media.media_service');

// Whatever u want do with the name
$_name = $_FILES['file']['name']; 

$_file_content = file_get_contents($_FILES['file']['tmp_name']);

// Check
if($mediaService->has("media/pdf/$_name") === false){
	// upload to media Folder in md5 Format
	try {
		$mediaService->write("media/pdf/$_name", $_file_content);
	} catch(Exception $e) {
		echo '';
		echo '';


I hope I could give you a little inspiration.
