2) Ease of uploading high quality photographs and videos -particularly direct from a smartphone.

There is no limitations other than what you set for images. The roadblocks you are going to encounter are server limitations. Creating a thumb from very large image for example requires a lot of RAM. In addition to that not a lot of benefit on small devices, at viewing distance the average human can see about 250 to 300 DPI. Assuming a phone had display with 300DPI a screen of 5"*3" would only need 1500px*900px image...
The audio and video is even larger issue because you need to convert to HTML5 compatible format if it isn't. You'd also need that software installed for reducing resolution etc. That's not going to be available on shared hosting, in fact it's not going to be installed as default on VPS/dedicated. This requires a lot of CPU, you'd have to queue the videos up and limit the CPU processing.
That said the presentation of images, video and audio can use improvement. Minimally you could make HTML compatible audio/video embedded with player.
