Unfortunately not yet mate. It is a tricky conundrum due to the reasons I explained last time.
Quick question for you:
If a solution were to be possible (I’m not saying it is but just in case) which required that your “onboard” images in wordpress consist of the thumbs plus a 1024px image, would that be ok in terms of space? (The full sized version would naturally be stored off board – S3)
The above line of thinking needs us to figure out a reliable way to delete the full sized image from wordpress after it has been uploaded and then use the 1024px image in its place. For this to occur there are many areas within wordpress DB that need to be changed but it *may* be a remotely possible solution.March 11, 2015 at 8:38 pm #59274muleymadnessMember
My current file sizes are 1200×800 and I prefer that but suppose I could live with a bit smaller 1024 image. I’m not sure on that being okay in terms of space? But clearly it’s better than the current option of everything stored onboard (which isn’t plausible) at all for large photo galleries. So I guess my answers is that’s certainly better than nothing.November 11, 2016 at 3:02 am #59275danielr85Member
I am also in muleymadness’s position. I have no issue with hosting a low res image on the site and putting the download link somewhere else amazon s3 or dropbox or something (ANYTHING).
Thanks for the awesome work on your plugin so farMarch 12, 2018 at 4:21 pm #59276rnhturnerMember
Any news on this? I am in the same boat with thousands of images bogging down my wordpress site.March 13, 2018 at 4:34 am #59277adminKeymaster
The s3 option is good for when you want to allow users to just download static files. Our photo seller dynamically manipulates the images, crops it, watermarks it etc. Those actions need to happen on your server (so the plugin has permission to carry out those tasks). It doesn’t work out the way you maybe thinking. This is why we never advertise that there is amazon s3 integration on the landing page of the photo seller plugin.
FYI, the image files are not going to bog down your site unless it is accessed or loaded on your web pages. Image files configured in the gallery doesn’t do anything unless the gallery page is accessing it. Most of the time, people on shared hosting plans have the following issues and they think the issue is coming from the image files:
What kind of hosting plan are you using?
