Photo uploads



I've seen several references to a problem with letting users upload photos. Apparently the issue is storage space -- if lots of users upload lots of photos it will cost my company a bunch of money. I guess. Can someone break this down for me?

I am a news reporter. I created a Caspio Web form that allows readers to report weather conditions where they are and to upload a photo of what's going outside their homes, etc. Then the reports and photos are immediately available for other readers to view.

The advice I've seen is to store photos on our own servers, but in this case that doesn't seem workable. I need this page to be basically self-maintaining. I can't be managing reader photo submissions throughout a day by grabbing them and transferring them to our own servers.

Can anyone offer some insights? Thanks.
