I have been setting up a photo upload feature for a website which allows members to upload photos.
I am also after some advice on how large a file should be? I thought about allowing members to upload a photo up to 100,000 in size and allowing a maximum of 10 photos each but if I could expand this then it would be great. I just cant seem to find out how! obviously if I had a 1000 members for example each having 10 x 100,000 then thats a huge amount of space.
Is there anyway to compres the files that members upload. For example ...I see facebook which is well known for their photo uploads somehow compress the file and allow massive amounts of files on their servers.
Any advice would be great.
