Slow to publish pictures to a website

Hi experts

I am publishing pictures to a website using Adobe Contribute CS3. Each one takes 10 minutes to publish.

Any help/advice to speed this up would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you

sounds like the pics may be to big ..... have a look at the image size..... if this is large ....... ~2MB or more .....you could try optimizing the picture in a photo package to make the size smaller

And if the pictures are of a small file size, it could be your internet connection not uploading very quickly. You could put all the pictures on a USB, go to the library or a school, and upload from there. Since they usually have extremely fast internet

Thank you for your comments. The pictures are about 300 KB in size. I'll check the connection speed.

yeah 300kb uploading after 10 minutes is VERY slow!! Are you on dialup? Another reason it could be taking some time is because the website or program your uploading with is resizing images or creating thumbnails or something.

its a bad idea using high resolution image on web
you can reduce the image size and re-upload it again. Which will help you to faster download speed.

try opening the image on photoshop
and then press CTRL+SHIFT+ ATL+S or go to "FILE" and click on "save for web & device"
from the display box  set the quality to "60%" ( which will give you good quality and lower size) and can be easily downloaded even on dial up connection.

Hope it helped. :)

skilled: But honestly think about it. a high res file being 300kb? thats nothing! i can upload that in 3 seconds! Even with Dial up or something, 3kb/s is not right..

Could you check the resolution of the image, for web its better to use " 72"
if it exceed more then that then sometimes its take longer to render in the internet browser,
its weird but its a fact.

Sometime the browsing speeds also get slower when you exceed the limited bandwidth given by your hosting co.

opss sorry about the last answer please avoid it. Its not the right answer you are looking for,

i guess something wrong with your hosting server, is it acting weird for each and every files or its just those images??

It's a BT Broadband line. The website is creating thumbnails. It's doing the same for each photo that is being uploaded.

Hey just a quick question. what is your computers CPU speed? If its a slow CPU the application could be taking a long time since it cant process as fast.

Sounds like an issue with the connection or the hosting server 300kb is not really a large image especially in todays terms

What Operating system are you running ? have you had any other issues with connection speed? There are several online speed tests that you could try this will give you a report on what your upload speed is.
Are you uploading the image via a web client maybe you could use an FTP client i.e cute ftp to upload the file to the server. FTP has less overheads than http let us know how you go
