I have a little problem with a event gallery (general) performance. I have joomla with a gllery on my own server and a main problem - my server slightly old ;) And during image loading (both thumbnails and fullsize) CPU usage is around 20% per httpd.

So my question - is it possible to get direct links to images without using PHP? I have a good channel and direct image loading is pretty fast.

For example 2mb image directly -
and in the album (just click next few times and some images will load very slow)

PS: Would like to say thank you for event gallery software, plan to use extended version for my other project on a fast server :)

Best regards,

You can't get direct links to local images. Event Gallery creates thumbnails on demand to serve the right thumbnail to each client. But the thumbnail generation happens only one time per image per size. Then it uses the cached version of those thumbnails. So don't clear the image cache. If you upload new images, some thumbnails need to be calculated. After this, you should not notice a performance impact.

Sidenote: Please update to at least PHP7.1. All other versions are out of support by now.
