It has been long debated on quality of pictures vs. speed in which they are loaded while accessing them via gallery from each meeting.
I’ve made the decision to move all pictures from individual meetings/conferences to Flickr, instead of uploading them onto the ANS server.
This has a few advantages and disadvantages
Flickr auto compress images and optimize them between size and speed
Less space taking on ANS server for hosting the pictures
Flickr has better user interface
Images are not in one location, and it is up to the webmaster to know where it is
Images are hosted under MY personal account, and access to other website administrator is difficult
Anyhow, I’ll allow comments on this post (if anyone… would event comment that is) for those that wish to discuss this.
