Absolutely Rasberry Pi beginner here. Is it possible to use Rasberry Pi as web server for storing and retrieving photos from an external hard drive or will it be too slow?

It's difficult to tell what is being asked here. This question is ambiguous, vague, incomplete, overly broad, or rhetorical and cannot be reasonably answered in its current form. For help clarifying this question so that it can be reopened, see the FAQ.
Sure, the speed between the hard drive and the PI won't be a problem as I think the problem will may be the upload rate. Just try and tell us ;-)
