My issue of not being able to upload 25 images has been solved. Thanks Chris for leading me in the right direction by uploading and referencing the settings with a phpinfo.php file ( http://php.net/manual/en/function.phpinfo.php ).
To achieve being able to upload more files than the server specified, I did the following:
1. Created a file called called "php.ini"
2. In that file I put "max_file_uploads = 28"
3. Uploaded to the root directory of the site being worked on
Originally it was set to = 20 and I had 25 image upload fields in my form.
Different servers will most likely support different ways of accomplishing this (.htaccess file, main host changing setting on their end), but uploading a site specific php.ini file worked in my case.
