Question: Help! My images are taking a really long time to upload. What can I do?
Answer: Upload speeds can be effected by a number of issues, namely the size of the image, your internet connection and bandwidth available as well as how busy your local exchange is. Uploads can take a lot longer for example, during school holidays when everybody in the house is using the internet.
Upload speeds to your service provider are generally not as fast as typical download speeds.
So what can you do if the above happens? If you are trying to upload from a desktop at home, you could attempt to upload from your mobile device instead. This way, you can bypass your home internet, especially if the kids are playing games online! Alternatively, you could wait for a quieter time, later on in the evening, or first thing in the morning. Also make sure you are running the latest version of your browser. Check your computer performance. If you have a lot of applications open, you could be running out of memory, and this can effect upload speeds.
