Nobody likes to wait for photos to download on a website, so if you’re uploading photos that are directly from your digital camera, likely they are pretty huge and will take a long time to download. There’s an easy way around this — resize them!
I found a handy online tool that will let you easily shrink those files down to a more manageable size both for you to upload and for your patrons to download.
Go to http://www.cellsea.com/java-cellsea/media/index.htm
In the green box labeled “Load from your PC” click the “Browse” button.
Navigate to the photo you want to resize or send (Often in the My Photos folder on your computer)
Click Open, it will take a few seconds to a few minutes to upload your photo.
Once your photo appears, click the “Resize” tab at the top.
In the boxes on the right hand side, depending on the orientation of your photo, of course, put width 1024, and height 768 (assuming a rectangular, un-cropped photo). Don’t worry if the photo looks “too small” here, there is some sort of zoom factor in effect. The final product will be a just fine size for email.
Click the Save tab, and select “Save to PC” from the drop down.
Give the file a descriptive name, and click OK.
It will ask you to save the file to your computer, click OK (this can change depending on your browser, but you do want to download the file).
