We have an existing adult website where registered users (models) upload upto 6 photos of themselves to be included in their profile as a mini gallery.
The main screen has a thumbnail photo of each model. When clicked, this goes to their profile which has upto 6 small photos, and one larger photo.
However, there are several problems with the way that photos are currently handled by the website:
1) The main page takes a long time to load and scroll down, due to the large file size of the thumbnail pics
2) The thumbnail photos on main page, the small pics on the model's profile, and the main pic on the model's profile, all look very distorted and stretched, as the original photo is resized to fit the space allocated, regardless of it being landscape or portrait
3) When clicking a small pic on the model's profile, currently the photo opens in a 'lightbox', and some of the photos are huge.
Therefore, we need to correct the above. We need a site which loads quickly, is modern, with high quality but low filesize photos which are not distorted, which is optimised for search engines. In particular:
1) We need to reduce load/scroll time by making filesize of photos smaller
2) All photos must be good quality and not stretched/distorted
3) Instead of a lightbox, we would like the photos to be handled in a different way with all the thumbnails and small pics being square. The frame/space for the main photo on the model's profile should be square, so if it's a portrait shaped photo it fits the height of the square with spaces to the left and right, and if it's a landscape photo it fits the width of the square with spaces to the top and bottom. And when a small photo is clicked, the main photo should change to a larger version of that photo.
We need bids from people with proven track record of handling graphics and photo galleries, with examples we can see. Please note this is an adult website so please be comfortable with working with this content.
We need this task completing very quickly - within days so please only bid if you have immediate availability and can devote time solely to this project with good communications.
