Is it possible to reduce a file size of an image BEFORE its uploaded to my server.
My php uploads have a limit of 2mb I could just increase it but I have about 100 uploads of some quite large images a day onto my site and would like to know if its possible to reduce this locally before it uploads?
My alternative would be asking the visitors to keep the size down before uploading, but some users dont even know what 2mb means. The easier I can make it the better but at the same time I dont want huge files eating at my bandwidth which is what is happening at the moment!
I know there is imagemagick which is what I am currently using to resize and create thumbnails but I want the original file compressed before upload.
Is this possible?
