How would you handle bulk image uploads?

I am working on a project that will require a large amount of photos per type entry. Some of the entries may have up to 50+/- images and some may only have 1 image. I am trying to figure out the best way to handle this, I would like to compress/optimize the images prior to upload on the client side (looking at some javascript). I know bubble has a 10gb storage limit with the option to but more storage however I am thinking for my project it may be best to store the images via S3 or another server.

How would the pros handle this? Thanks

Hi rtrice81,

I opted on using the Uploadcare service -

There’s also a paid plugin for this, created by Zeroqode who have done some considerable work on it over time.

It was better suited for my needs as I wanted the ability for users to upload multiple images/videos into a grid like display and then drag/drop the order of them. It has workflow actions that manage optimizations and uses a Content Delivery Network (CDN).

It was mainly the size of videos and options around processing that stopped me using Bubble’s own storage though.

It may be of interest to you, I find it works really well now but it can be tricky to get the workflow actions doing what you need depending on your goals.
