I have an html form that allows users to to upload images to my website. To save bandwidth, time and other resources I'm starting to use a script that implements canvas resizing, if supported, before uploading the image. The base of the script you can find by searching for "Resizing images before upload using HTML5 canvas".
I'm running into a problem and wondering if there are no ways around it. If js is disabled or canvas is not supported in the browser than the images are uploaded. Else, if this script runs than instead of images, base64 text of the image is returned. This complicates the backend script that receives the images (or now base64 text). Is there a way of sending the resized images themselves and not the text?
