images too big for website

  joeltr 16:35 16 Mar 2004

about six months ago i created a website with windows just to put images on there to show family and friends, i have put many photos on the site, deleted when full and then fill it again all with no problems atall, yesterday i used windows wizard to put some more on, only six pics, it took ages to complete, and when i went to the site the pics were behind what looks like a beach scene with a sandman and a clock reading ten past four, i clicked on one and the image is massive with the blue bar below and to the right to view, i put some of my original pics on just to see, and they were the normal viewing size,i recently purchased photoplus 8 from serif, i was wondering if this is in anyway to blame, any solutions please, thanks in advance, joel

I am assuming here that you are using a digital camera to get you photos. If so have you changed the reolution of the images that it takes. The higher the quality the bigger the file size and of course the image size. You really should not need any image bigger that 640X480 pixels to go onto the web page. Bige file take a long time to load and dont really improve the image quality when displayed. So use a photo editing software such as Paintshop Pro to resive you images for web use. You dont need the latest PSPro for that and will be able to find an older version as a freebie if you look at some of the magazine discs.
