I use http://www.flickr.com

free with $25 yearly option (to create more than 3 groupings and to remove the upload bandwidth limit among other benefits).

full sized image viewing.

no storage limit.

monthly upload bandwidth limit.

As to the best way to compress photos, that is subjective. What is your goal? PNG is the best format as far as quality vs. file size.

you can check out my pics here: http://www.flickr.com/photos/memento/

Another vote for Flickr here. It's very easy to use, has lots of help available, and I likethe overall look and feel of the interface.

If you're a camera phone user I would recommend trying out PixSense (http://pixsense.com). They're still in their beta phase but the application is pretty good. I've been using it for a while now. I take 2MP pictures with my N70 and it compresses the picture beforeuploading it to the web gallery. That not only makes it faster to upload and share, but also saves me a lotta $$$

style="BACKGROUND-COLOR: #000000"Try it out and see if you like it.

I have tested around 20 programs capable to compress and email photo, including Shiffit, WinRar, ZipSnap, Shrink Pic and others in an effort to find the software that offers the best compression ratio and it seems Love2Photo has the best! Another good program is Shiffit. Shiffit is a bit faster, but Love2Photo produces smaller album sizes, plus it is easy to email photo.



Hereis it's web-site, just in case :

I know everyone says you can't compress jpgs but I found a program that does without ruining your pictures.

It's called Shrink. It will compress jpgs by a huge amount without lowering the image quality. I just compressed some pictures that took up 366mb to one file that takes up 125mb.

I zoomed in on parts of the photos after decompression and compared them to the original pictures and couldn't find any difference.

It's only $10 to register. Find it here --

I hope this helped.

Hi,
I take my photos at the largest resolution possible. Therefore my image sizes are 2-3 megabytes each.

What is the best way to reduce the file size? How is it done? I have Photoshop 6.0 (new to me).

Is there a standard size for resizing photos for these web posting sites?

I see free and Pay$ sites, does anyone have opinions on the non obvious differences?

Any advice given is appreciated. Thank you all.

Matt
Your pictures, 2-3 megabytes each,could be easy compressed by jpeg compressor in 4-5 times without quality loss.

I upload photos to their free photo sharing so there are no problems with free space on hdd and pay sites.

p/s besides it's free for hosting and sharing...

Zenfolio might be worth checking out as well. They have a 12-20megabyte limit on their file sizes (depends which plan you get) and at the lowest plan you get 1gb for every year you're with them, or on the middle plan unlimited storage.

I got $5 off their "middle" plan so it worked out to be $35 a year. And it's really easy to use customize...so it's worth checking out.
