Do you know how long it'd take to upload it?
Communications 30.7 kilobits per second
Storage 3.8 kilobytes per second
1MB file download 4.5 minutes
Subjective rating Slow
I usually compress all graphics so everything is about 80% faster.
Why are you uploading pictures that are 1 mb in size. When you convert to JPEG, you should be able to drop the resolution to a manageable size such as 40 to 50,000 KB's. That way, you still get a pretty good picture up on the forum but it uploads in just seconds, even on this slow-ass dial-up.
I'm not actually uploading 1MB pics. I just ran a speed test, and those were the results. It would take 4.5 minutes to upload a file that size.
