First, what determines how long it takes to upload any image into the Image Manager? Whenever I must include a screenshot in my guide, I have to wait for my previous images in the Image Manager to fully display before it can begin uploading. This takes several minutes in both Chrome and Edge. During this time, I can't write since the Image Manager sits on top of the text-input screen where I write.

For the record, I imagine my screenshots are big. Thing is, though, even when I use https://tinypng.com/ , it moves at a glacier's pace. Granted, my ancient laptop has a few heavy-duty programs running, so...

Is there ANYTHING I can do to make this less of a hassle?

Aside from this...wrinkle, things work swimmingly. @Devin_Morgan deserved a medal for whatever he did. I apologize for insulting him months ago.

I refer to my post long time ago https://gamefaqs.gamespot.com/boards/2000094-gamefaqs-contributors-faqs-and-guides/76481352/899019550 , #29 to be exact. The point is that now Image Manager can be opened in a new browser tab so that you can work separately between writing and uploading images.

If your document address is https://gamefaqs.gamespot.com/contribute/editor_doc?sid=39 then the link to the Image Manager is https://gamefaqs.gamespot.com/uimage?sid=39&page=1 . Remember to adjust the sid with the proper sid attached to your document. If you have slow connection like me, adjust the "page" parameter with big number so that no image is displayed at all. That's to prevent the uploading process from becoming stuck.

For screenshots you may be better off using JPG instead of PNG.

We also cut the images per page in the manager in half which should help a bit.
