I need to store in a remote place pictures taken via media.picker. I use a mysql db to achieve this with a blob field type
Each picture taken is about 4.4 mb. With a 4G network it takes between 2 and 7 seconds to upload and store, which is too long and gives the impression that the application is stuck.
I tried to use change the quality "low - medium - high" but suprisingly it doesn't seem to have any impact on the picture size ( if I check in mysql all blob have the same 4.4mb size )
what is the best approach to store the pictures ?
any idea to reduce the size before sending them ?
