Friends of mine sent me four pictures that I loved and was delighted to recieve.

There was a slight problem though - it was the size of the pictures !!

Four pictures - over 4 MegaBytes - even with BroadBand, a significant time to download.

Three Digital Camera pictures Quarter of a MegabByte each, Stunning Wedding pic, 3.5 MegaByte

See the bottom of the page for 'Lesson to be learned'

Picture above is as supplied

Quarter of a MegaByte

Would take a long time to download on a DialUp connection

 

Picture above is as supplied, but the Browser is aked to re-size it to 426 pixels wide

Quarter of a MegaByte

Would take a long time to download on a DialUp connection

Would use Power and Time on the Local, Client, PC to do the re-sizing

 

Picture above was opened in PaintShopPro (but any Picture processing program would do just as well)

Re-sized to 426 pixels wide and saved as JPG file (could have been digitally enhanced at the same time (but I didnt)

35 KiloBytes - tiny by comparison

Would take almost no time to download, even on a DialUp connection

 

Suggestion
