I can become a little paranoid over picture sizes for two reasons.
1) We have a very, very slow internet speed. (Max acceptable distance from the exchange is 6km, we are 6.6km so shouldn't have any at all to be honest.) If I click on a web page that is extremely photo heavy it can take so long everything freezes. It's very frustrating but that is what I have to deal with. If a blog has fat photos I quite often skip the post totally after a minute or two.
2) There is only so much space out there and fairly recently I have seen several Bloggers panic now they have filled their allotted space. I don't want to reach that position if I can help it even though Blogger has upped the storage amount.
I think not dealing with your photos before just slapping them on the internet is a little selfish so I really need to find a way I can sort this. iPhoto doesn't even come close to the ease of using Office Picture Manager, and I have tried, but when they converted Office to a Mac version they happened to forget to change PM too. I am currently having a play with JPEGmini Lite and the following were done with it. Very easy but it is only a compression package, 20 a day for free, and it will change the originals too but they look the same and I don't need to blow them up for printing to cover a building!! Perfectly fine for the blog.
My only other gripe at the moment is the size of the teeny weeny pictures in the Finder. How do I know which photos I want to preview if I can't even see them? (Windows has several sizes on offer and they just stay that size when you open the folders so you can see the things!) If anyone knows if there is a way and how to have thumbnails I can actually see I would be grateful.
Yesterday's afternoon book listening had me fiddling around with some Flimsie...
threads and snipping scraps...
a hand needle felting tool.
Paint sploshing is on the agenda now.
