We've enhanced the NextGEN Gallery uploader to be lighter, faster, and extendable.
The uploader can perform up to 500% faster than the previous uploader, depending on:
- Whether you are on a shared server, cloud server, VPS server, or dedicated server
- Active plugins that impact front and backend performance
The new uploader is built with future-thinking technology in mind, like jQuery 3.5.1, just as the Imagely Theme does.
One of the other ways we achieved this is by uploading your images in parallel instead of individually.
Update to the latest NextGEN Gallery today to take full advantage of the new uploader.
In the video below we share a real-time look at an upload of 77 images at nearly 200MB total, to a live server on a live website.
