Thanks for the clear compilation post. Gold.
For the cropping, it looks like you’re using imgx processing in the “browse for users” section. Have you had the chance to test the performance impact of processing in real time? @Jici mentionned that images might be cached by Bubble, and I read something similar elsewhere.
I’m forcing cropping on upload right now, but I will remove that extra step from my UX if it’s not that much slower to process imgx in real-time.
