One of the speed bottlenecks in iSpot seems to be in adding photos. I note that when the photo has been added the file size is reported as roughly 20-25% of the original. I presume that this is because some file compression is done by the iSpot servers so as to conserve disk space. It does mean, however, that the whole big original file has to be uploaded.
Has any consideration been given to downloading a file compression gizmo to the user's machine? This would only have to be done once for each user machine. The compression would then be done by the user's machine and only the compressed file uploaded. Upload times would be significantly improved and some of the load would be taken off the iSpot servers.
Worth some thought?
