Searched around for an answer but couldn’t find one.

When resizing photos to upload, what’s the optimal size? There‘re a few options in a photo resizing app I downloaded, but I have no clue what size is optimal for the site. Frustrating using a iPhone.

I emailed myself a couple pics and had the option to resize but is a pain in the ass for sure.

I resized to 2000 pixels, and it seems to work, if anyone’s interested.

anything over 2 MB has to be reduced in size or it shows up too large to send ...

Try to keep each photo around 30-90K.
On most monitors the information loss from
an optimized photo is not noticed by most users.

For MLP 750 pixels wide is a good size for viewing. Any thing

larger and MLP reduces it to 750 pixels wide anyway, if I remember correctly.

Photos load a hell of a lot faster when optimized; and most un-optimized photos are 2-4 MBs.
