Photos in a digital camera are huge!! typically 4mb or more. Left at that size they will take a long time to appear on a website, they will use a lot of bandwidth both at the server and for the viewer.
This is unnecessary – it’s easy to resize photo’s with Easy Thumnails.
The average monitor resolution is 1024 pixels wide, when fully open (2012)
