It may be easy to insert an image into your webpage with just a few clicks, but those images can be huge. The large file size can increase the time it takes for a webpage to load properly, especially on a mobile device. New district guidelines shared at PD suggest that web photos be no larger than 350-400 pixels in any one direction. You can resize images relatively easily in iPhoto, exporting (saving) the new size to your desktop or other location. This still leaves the original in iPhoto.
Here’s how to get your photos ready for your webpage:
When it’s time to insert your photo onto your webpage, select the new image you just exported.
Note: While it’s possible to change the image size when you insert a photo onto a Google Sites page, that doesn’t actually change the physical size of the photo. It’s like shrinking a document on the copy machine. The image looks smaller, but it’s still on the same size paper, taking up the same overall amount of physical space.
