I'm trying to wean my members off photobucket & have been suprised at the size of the images they've uploaded & linked to. 300ppi images of 500kb have not been unusual!
Afraid at the space they'd use up ( I do appreciate I can set upload limits) I found an online image optimiser for them to use as many do not seem to be have or know how to use image editing software. It's been well used & works well
It's also possible to apply for a key to imbed it into your own site so I've done that & stuck a stripped down (KISS principle) version on a custom page.
