Shrinking pictures to upload to the web

By now most, if not all of us have had the opportunity to upload a picture to our website or e-mail a picture to a friend. Many times these pictures are from our own camera that we’ve taken. Sometimes these pictures are far too big to be uploading to the web or e-mailing to friends. Either the picture is rejected or it takes so long to upload that it’s not worth the time to do it.

How big is too big?

Typically a picture that you e-mail or upload should be no bigger than 100kb. Anything larger and it is truly bigger than it needs to be for a webpage or e-mail. If you need to share pictures at a higher quality then you should consider sharing the pictures in a different manner.
