Resizing images

Is hitting your bandwidth limit an ongoing problem? Part of the cause could be the size of your images.

When you upload an image, is it really big and then you resize it to fit? Bingo! Because when someone views the resized image on your blog they still are sent the full size, it just appears smaller on the screen. That's where much of your bandwidth may be going.

Ideally you should either have a thumbnail that links to the bigger image - how to do that is beyond the scope of this article, it will be dependent on your theme.
