To reduce or not to reduce, this is the question before us :)
« on: December 29, 2005, 11:28:53 pm »

Before I try RAW format I am using High Jpeg which makes my shots default to 3027 x 2048. This is  pain in the arse to view as you must slide around in order to see the image. Sooo I guess I am asking a general census on do yall shrink your sizes down at all? Or just leave em as is and let the thumbnail -- intermediate view suffice for a see all shot?

I have been shrinking mine down to 1024 x 768 so that the "see full size" can actually be seen without sliding around the larger image.

Thanks in advance for all the different view points

Unless you have a reason to provide HQ files, like photo quality prints, keeping them full size is a waste of storage space and bandwidth. Not to mention a waste of the viewer's time to download it and having a screen resolution that doesn't even need that much info.

So, I reduce my files for the reasons above, but also for protection of them.

I usually resize my pics to 800x600 in Photoshop before uploading and set 'Create intermediate pictures' to No in the config. As most of my photos aren't very.. 'artistical' anyway there's no need for people to see them in more than 800x600. But, if someone would want to, I always upload a zip file with all the originals. That's not an option for everyone though, if you don't have a lot of space on your webserver.
