Why Reduce the Photo Size

  • A smaller file size means a reducing time to load a page with a lot of images.
  • A limit of 0.5 Mb per image has been set but they can be much smaller and still display well.
  • A high quality display of an image on PC, Tablet or Phone does not require a large size.
  • It is better to keep photos of print quality away from the web as photos can be downloaded.
