    uploading images

    I am trying to upload images to a server and it takes for ever through FTP. Is there any other more efficient way to upload images to a server? So it can be done faster.

    FTP is designed specifically for transferring files and is therefore the most efficient way to do it. Any other method will be slower (it will take much longer for the image to display on a web page than it will to upload it).

    Don't forget to start your JavaScript code with "use strict"; which makes it easier to find errors in your code.

    No. The time it takes depends on the size of your images. I suggest you optimize your images for the web. Upload speed may increase not sure. It also depends on your web host.

    If it is taking a long time for you to upload the images unsing FTP, it will take at least that long for someone else to download them when viewing your page. You definitely want to optomize those images and make the file sizes smaller.
