At 56kbits (= approx 5,6000 10 bit-bytes/sec) it will take less than 14
upload a 68K byte image. at 28K thats still only 28-32 secs depending
on actual throughput which is most likely always less than a 45-60secs.
AND if you calculate on 8-bit bytes that is 7000 bytes/second which = about
Dl this one: its 68k.
So that does not seem like "lots of time to load on most computers" (which
today come wiht a $25 56kb modem. Besides continuous tone images
really don't sit well in gif or tiff format. I would therefore stay with the
