Find a tip:
The term "bandwidth" refers to the transfer rate of your connection to
the internet. The better your internet connection speed or "bandwidth",
the faster you can download and upload digital photos.
Broadband is sometimes referred to as
"asymmetric" due to the fact that send and receive speeds or times are not
equal. A file that is 1MB (an average photo) may only take a few
seconds to download but may take over a minute to upload.
To give you an idea of the discrepancies
between the download speed and the upload speed take a look at these
broadband Internet connection speeds.
1. Upload at night - transfer photos to our online site at night.
Begin transfer before you go to bed – the photos will almost
always be there in the a.m.
2. Share images online - it is faster and
easier for family and friends to use online albums rather than
repeatedly uploading photos as email attachments. (
And they will thank you for not clogging up their email inboxes!)
