I need photos from clients. However, my computer is getting overwhelmed with the size of the photos they email me. Does anyone know of a very simple script where I can have them upload photos to my website and the upload will automatically compress them?Or, in lieu of that, is there an online photo site where you can set up a public upload link.Thanks,Caatps. my site is html - http://www.pawstalk.net - I don't have a ton of coding experience but I know enough to cut and paste and change text within code to send the file to a specific place, as long as I know where to change it. Thanks in advance,Caat
There are a number of ways to do it, but I let the experts advise you on the best way to get it done. My immediate suggestion is to ask your correspondents to reduce/resample the image sizes before sending them to you. Unless you intend to make mural size prints, I'm sure you don't need 16MP pictures.~aj
I do, but if they are computer illiterate, it just ends up causing me more work in tech support.
You'd have to do the work yourself, but using a product from FastStone can sure make it easier. Check out the Image Viewer and the Photo Resizer.http://www.faststone.org/I've used both products and they are fast and easy to use.Charlie Brown
I came across this (but haven't tried it) - DropItToMe:http://www.ampercent.com/dropittome-public-uploader-page/699... http://dropitto.me/ It's just a beta, but lets you link an upload page to a Dropbox.com account so you can have people upload to your Dropbox folder. You set it up as a client app in Dropbox, so you're not exposing your Dropbox account password.Getting started tutorial:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=o8XrAuOic2A Also a Dropbox Uploader Script (php), if you wanted direct integration into your own website:http://www.ampercent.com/dropbox-uploader-allow-users-upload... - Sri
I should add to my prior post - it's just for quickly setting up a public upload page (with an upload password) to a handy online storage utility (Dropbox) with email notification of new uploads. It doesn't do image resizing or any other stuff.I quickly tried it myself just now & it worked pretty well.- Sri
