Can we have a functionality that will insert corresponding line immediately:
[![enter image description here]]
and allow us to continue editing of a question or an answer while actual image will be loaded in the background? And only after this process is completed, this functionality will add another line:
"silently" in the end of text being edited without interrupting the work of the editor?
Recently (about 6 months into the past) something has permanently gone really bad and:
- at least for my location (southern Poland),
- even though I am on 600/60 Mbit cable connection,
uploading image as small as 5 kBytes takes approx. 5-10 seconds. Not mentioning really big images which upload to imgur can last 30+ seconds.
Currently image loader covers the whole editor and prevents edit from being continued. So each such upload means at least 15-30 seconds of break in editing the content. This is a very counter-productive as far as I know (correct me if I am wrong).
EDIT (6 July 2020): My main ISP upgraded my line and subscription plan to up to 900/90 Mbps and I was also playing around with quite a few other ISP providers and testing this in various geographical locations and... nothing has changed for past 9 months.
Uploading even a tiny image takes at least 10 seconds and editing is totally blocked during that. If I have a question or answer that includes three or more images then uploading all of them will most likely take more time in total than actually writing an post (I tend to keep things short).
We urgently need a feature of uploading images in background without blocking an editor in the same time.
Please, do not post answers and comments like "hmm... works for me" or "I upload images with a snap of fingers". I don't discuss internet speed here. I discuss the lack of feature of background images upload in the entire SE.
