It seems a waste to have the image data in memory from the
http request, have to write it to disk, and immediately read it
back into memory. It's a major bottleneck. Any other suggestions
outside of CF?
it's not a waste, it is just how things work.
cf has absolutely no idea about what's going on the client's
are you sure it is imageREad that is "slow"? or maybe it just
while for you to upload your file?
maybe some java applets or activeX controls can do it
directly on client
side.... don't know of any though...
