Some of the strings of Hi res. photos posted lately, have sent my DSL hook up back to dial up speed.
Once loaded, I can barely scroll thru them. Have the rules about image size changed, is it just me?
Anyone else have this problem? Railgeek's posts in the model forum seem to cause me the most problem.

It looks like the pictures are scaled - somehow...which appears to only affect the appearance.


When I look at properties for one of the pictures, I get this:
Image Dimensions: 2304px × 3072px (scaled to 275px × 367px)

Size of File: 2574.95 KB (2636747 bytes)


So, it's about 18 MB worth of pictures in one post....

Someone needs to get a copy of photoshop. Resize the image to 800 width max (let the height go where it goes, unless crop),

the learn how to use the File -> Save for Web & Devices. In that menu, select jpg(best results for me) and lower the quality slider to a few clicks above where you start to see it get compressed too much.
Look at the bottom left of the screen, see the file size, then save it.

I have gotten 5 page size photos on my companys website today under 500k of space and they look great. (example)
