Default Managing 1000's of images - what is the load?

Currently experimenting with install of

subdreamer 2.2
vbulletin 3.08
vba gallery 1.01

In addition, have a couple of other photo type apps installed on the server attempting to figure out how to best manage my site and photos.

There are 5 to 8 teams I will cover, each with over 15 games a year. Each game I shoot 400-600 photos. Over 6,000 photos a year. I write an article for each game and pull out the 20 to 80 shots. Then I take 10-40 of those and put them into a image catalog / shopping cart. Then, I dump the entirety at low resolution and dump them into the photo gallery.

Question:
What kind of load will I be putting on the server using the Geek Article System.

Can anyone recommend a better workflow.

Thanks

Current Workflow
1) dump photos from camera to one folder on hard drive
2) copy "game article shots" to seperate folder
3) copy "for sale" shots to a seperate folder
4) run image processing vs all on local machine (reduce for web)
5) ftp upload to appropriate folders
6) use the interfaces from the various web based apps to get the photos top process the photos from the ftp uploads folders -

The Geek Pop Up for VBA Gallery

1) specifically, I was thinking about using the vba gallery to hold all images, then, using this mod to write the articles - so, the question becomes more important

When, you have a multiple category forum (gallery) where users have to drill down to find a forum with photos - will the Pop Up Mod work for me if I have hundreds or thousands of photos uploaded to the gallery

Thanks

GARS pretty much uses vBulletin to function.. Geek will be able to describe this better, but the articles are actually forum posts.

You'll experience as much load with GARS as you do with vBulletins standard attachment features.

Default Where are the images stored?

In vba gallery all of a users images are stored in a folder. I will test this, but, if anyone knows......

The questions are:

1) When images are attached to a forum post (article) where are they then stored?
2) When images are inserted with a forum post via WYSIWYG ?

Answers
1) they are added to the database
2) they are referenced and left at the url

Is this correct?

Thanks

1) depends on the setting for attachments in vbulletin I believe (so may be the database or filesystem depending on attachment settings in vbulletin options.

2) correct
