CF = server
<input type='file'> = client
no, there is no way to do what you want with just CF.
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 machine.
are you sure it is imageREad that is "slow"? or maybe it just takes a
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...
