[SOLVED] How to manage image field with hundreds of images? in General Support Posted July 12, 2022 17 hours ago, Jan Romero said: You could also try using a Files field instead. I imagine the page editor performance will be better and it won’t auto-generate thumbnails. Of course, you’ll have a harder time scaling and using the images in the front-end. Check this thread for more info https://processwire.com/talk/topic/26113-resize-image-manually/ That did the trick! The Files field is indeed a lot more performant than the Images field. On top of that, I noticed it doesn’t seem to alter the original image file during upload. When I was using the Images field, it seemed to corrupt the EXIF/IPTC data of the original image file. I could only read that information of about 50% images after the upload. Using the Files field, I can read that data from all the images.
