I cannot say I've used the plugin you are referring to below. However,
I've had a similar design decision in the past. Not that this is the
best method mind you but it works.
We decided to create a number of resized copies from the original image
and store on the servers. Now all we have to worry about is hard drive
space. Another sticky point was the controversy of do we store the
images on a database server or a content server (the images need to be
shared across a number of web servers). The content server won out in
In my opinion, rescaling on demand is not a good way to go on this (I'm
guessing I'll get some heckles for that statement). With hard drives
as cheap as they are, I believe the best choice is to precreate the
thumbnails or whatever it is you're doing.
