We take feedback from the community very seriously. Lately we have been concentrating alot of our time on improving the speed of the site and ensuring that everything runs as fast as possible without any problems.
We are aware that some people may not submit reports when they experience a problem and thus we don't know that there is a problem. Therefore, I would like to post a question.
When uploading a photo to the gallery, how long does it take to upload the photo (only the 1st step of the upload process)? If you could provide an answer to this along with information about the filesize in MB and your average upload connection speed we might get a better idea if there is a problem. Also, if you could provide me with your web browser of choice.
You can find your upload speed at http://www.speedtest.net
Here is mine:
Average Time: 20seconds
Download Speed: 4MB/sec
Upload Speed: 2MB/sec
Browser of Choice: Firefox 4

I have no idea if this is the information you want, but:-
Download Speed: 2.92
Upload Speed: 0.16
If you were to ask me "How is the speed with EPZ today?" I'd say brilliant, moving along nicely and uploading was fine!
Helpful, but I could due with know how long it takes for a photo to upload and roughly how big the file is to be uploaded.
Ok - sorry, didn't time it!
Isn't the file size 400Kb?
Just tried this request from David.
First attempt - "unable to display webpage"
Second attempt -6 seconds for image to appear
Third attempt - 17 seconds for image to appear
Hope it is of some help
To avoid any confusion. the first three comments above, refer to image upload.
Nowt to do with the speed test

If the maximum file sizes for non e2 is 70k and for e2 200k why are you uploading a file size of 1.7MB ?

Actually, it is 400kb for E2
From epz's F.A.Q.'s section
Quote: If you are an e2 member then you can upload pictures with an image dimension of up to 1000x1000 pixels. Please try to make the filesize smaller than 200K if possible.
I believe they reduced it in the Gallery v5 upgrade
Quote: The image MUST be less than 100k in size (400K for e2 Members). This is the bit most new members get
This is what I am reading in the F.A.Q's ???????????????
I tried a 1.4 MB file upload earlier today and allowed the site to re size the image it took about 10 secs to upload
Speedtest results below:-
Download Speed: - 2.17 Mbps -
Upload Speed: - 1.23 MBps - Id take this with a pinch of salt though i guess this speed is on ideal conditions
Browser of Choice: - Firefox running on Macbook Pro
Are you saying that once the image has been saved @ 1000 px max @72 dpi then there is no need to resize for web @ 400kb, as the site now does it for you?

Yup the site will eventually resize any image you upload to the specs above. Even if you were to upload a bigger size image it would automatically resize it..but following this route seems to result in some loss in sharpness in the image uploaded so its best to resize and sharpen at your end before uploading it...
Upload time: 12 seconds
