I’m about to create a new home for my wilderness photography and I want
to make it a full-fleddged Web 2.0 app to also act as a marketing tool
for my web development business.
I would like to use the SuperImage plugin for all of the images on the
site, which will include lots of thumbnails and a significant number of
relatively high res images (compared to a “regular” website).
I’m worried about the fact that this plugin would result in my server
doing the work to re-size images over and over again for each user,
rather than just having the properly sized images on disk on the server.
With each user (hopefully) looking at a large number of images, I don’t
think caching will likely make much difference. Caching would mostly
help with a large number of users looking at the same (fairly small) set
of images in the same sizes.
Has anyone here done some sort of a gallery site using this plugin with
a significant amount of traffic? How have you found the performance?
