Just wanted to let you know that I don't like or comment on your images because I am on satellite internet with limited data usage allowance (no other option where I live).. I never get to see your photos because they are so large and it takes a very long time to download them..sometimes they don't load at all. There are a few other members that I can't see their images either....
So just a friendly note so you and others here do not think that I am rude or something like that.
To all a good day!
Thanks for writing, tbh I don't keep tabs on who likes stuff, it is always nice to see a few likes mounting up however.
I am sorry to hear you have trouble seeing stuff, is it just external linked images or forum server ones?
My workflow for web images from a capture sharpened TIF is essentially:
constrain to 1024x1024 (smaller than the forum maximum)
convert to sRGB
save jpeg compression level 6
This results in files of typically ~100 Kb depending on the detail in them it can very from 60 to <300 kb however, the extremes are rare. I host on my ISP server which seems no slower than anyone else even via a internet connection not of that ISP.
Using my mod super-powers I can see your files are typically 70-100 Kb, many others are a similar size to mine.
I don't think there is anything on POTN you can adjust to send down-sampled images (specially externally hosted ones).
If it is a matter of download time you could have two browser windows going (one downloading one being viewed) but if it is a question of the cost of the bytes that will not help.
