upload many images

i have a question, when we use to upload many images, for example: _MG_2605.jpg, this image is safe into the database, but the powergalery create many images as:_MG_2605_1024p.jpg, _MG_2605_999c.jpg, etc....

The problem is that we upload 1000 between 1200 each gallery, i want to kwonw if only the powergallery upload one foto and not create the other ones....we have complains for the space.

Thanks

The many images are the optimized versions to use in the gallery. If you are uploading photos, the space of the original image is probably greater than the sums of the spaces of all of the copies. If you tried to use the original image and it was a photo, it would be way too large to display on a web page.

If you are only using a particular size in your gallery, then you could update it to only create that particular size and not the other versions.

Can I get FTP access to your server? I'd like to take a look at what you have and I can potentially suggest a solution. What version of powergallery are you using? How large are the original files you are uploading? If I get FTP access I can answer these questions for myself.

ftp

version of powergallery are you using? the first one.

If you see the folder "admin", this is where i have the powergallery, and inside a folder name "images", where all the folders.

I only need the image thank is store into the data base...like 900 px...for my client it is enough.

Thanks.

If it is a space issue, you will need to upload smaller images to begin with. I'm just looking at an example... gallery 100 has images stored at:

/admin/images/100

The first image in the list is: _MG_2603.jpg

It was uploaded as a 1.05 MB image. Powergallery created 9 smaller copies of the image to use on the page because you wouldn't want a 1.05MB image used on the web directly. The sum of the sizes of the 9 created images is about 400K... which is less than half the size of the original image.

You can limit the number of images created in the file: /admin/admin_gallery/common/properties.php

deleting the lines with widths and heights will stop the gallery from creating that size image, but some galleries could depend on using that size, so it could prevent some gallery images from displaying properly.

If you removed all but one image, in the example I have shown, it would cut the storage size from 1.4MB to 1.1MB by removing 8 of the 9 image copies.

I think the better solution would be to keep the 9 copies so that all of the galleries would all continue to work, since you don't save much space by deleting them anyway.... but to resize the original image to a smaller size before uploading it, or edit the gallery page /admin_gallery/addimages.php and resize the original uploaded image before processing it.

If you want help resizing the uploaded image on the addimages.php page, this is something we could do in a premier support ticket..
