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,
Caat

ps. 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.

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.

I've used both products and they are fast and easy to use.

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:

Also a Dropbox Uploader Script (php), if you wanted direct integration into your own website:

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.
