Downsizing photo files for forum use ..

Some of the recent photos being linked to for forum viewing appear to be original camera files .. over 5,000 x 3,400 pixels and over 14 megabytes large. For those of us viewing on unlimited high-speed connections, that's OK. But for those on limited modest-speed connections, can be a tad troublesome.

Most readers upload downsized versions of their photos for forum linking .. around 1024 x 768 pixels and 400 to 600 kilobytes .. quicker to download and easier on the bandwidth.

It's good form to use a downsizing app to prepare photos for forum use. We touched on this topic in an earlier thread ..
