No, Val, I’m not shouting at anyone. All I’m trying to do is to help all you Charioteers get the best out of this site.
Those with super-fast broadband don’t have to worry about download times, but those with slow connections do; even Boadicea and I, with a medium-fast ADSL1 connection, get extended times with really large files. We are all affected by being profligate with WordPress storage, and we all want our photographs to display on our colleagues monitors with the best possible quality, don’t we?
So here is a detailed tutorial on pictures, file sizes and formats, download times, compression techniques and browser rendering engines. I urge you all to read it – it’s in simple English – even those one or two of you who know as much, or more than I do about the subject (because you can correct my errors). I’ve left out a lot of detail where I think it doesn’t matter, and I’ve rounded many of the figures (so please don’t attack the maths). If you want to know more, there’s lots on the web – here’s a possible starting point.
You will find the tutorial here, and on the menu bar, as a submenu under ‘Images’.
