Resize your images to share them online.
Modern cameras capture so much information that file sizes can be huge. All that detail is important if you’re printing your photos, but it’s unnecessary for sharing online. High-resolution images take a long time to load on WordPress or Squarespace web pages. Social media sites like Facebook and Instagram do basic photo compression to boost load time, often to the detriment of your images.
