What is Image Uploader?
Image Uploader is the solution intended to make mass file upload easier. It is simply embedded into HTML code of your web page and does not require end-user to download and install it manually. A modern appearance and intuitive user interface make Image Uploader attractive for end-users as well as clear for computer novices. Here is a common workflow to upload files with Image Uploader:
- Users visit a page where Image Uploader resides and select as many files as they want.
- When all the files are added, they click Upload.
- Image Uploader prepares a HTTP POST request with user-selected files and additional data and sends it to the server page specified in its settings. This page receives and processes the request and performs any other upload-related actions.
- Progress bar with remaining upload time estimation is shown during the upload process; so, users always know how long to wait, and they can always stop the upload if it takes too long.
Additionally, Image Uploader is able to apply automatic client-side data optimization before sending it. For example, it can resize images and compress files to ZIP archives. This way the add-on reduces traffic, uploading time, and server disk amount used to store your data.
