I have been trying to upgrade my Hubs and follow the new rules. One of the areas I am struggling with is the photo capsule.
Some of my photos are poor quality.
It would be helpful to have an option to suggest the photo size given the quality of the photo.
I struggle too with the picture size - perhaps it is my monitor or my old eyes. Hard for me to tell when I have the photo too large with too much pixilization. Is there a way to right click or something and see the quality of the photo?
Right click the photo and choose "view image information". A full size photo should be around 50 KB minimum while a smaller one pushed to the right might be 10 KB.
The numbers can only be a guideline, however. A smaller size might work well, as these are just some numbers I grabbed from my hubs.
They must be at least 260 pixels wide.
520 pixels wide if you want it to fill the width of the content area of the hub.
I struggle with this, too...not the pixelation part, but deciding if I have too may pictures or if they are too big. I. for one, love to look at pictures, particularly on "how-to" articles and the bigger, the better as far as pictures go, but don't want to make picture only hubs. Although they do say "a picture is worth a thousand words", I know I need to write content. How much is too much? How big is too big?
The HP system will resize an image down. So it doesn't matter how big in dimension or file size (though there is a limit to the file size, which I can't remember off the top of my head, but it's quite high) it will reduce it properly.
Small images being stretched out to be bigger is the problem. That's when it will become pixelated.

I just checked one of my hubs where I give people the option to click and view the FULL size picture and now it looks like we have this slideshow that gives you about a half size view of the picture, if that. I...

Can you not alter a picture size anymore in edit or is that just a glitch? Now when I try to upload a small picture it blows it up and warns me that I have a blurry or pixalated image. Of course it is. I upload a 350...

For me, the Best Photographer award is a no-brainer. http://aviannovice.hubpages.com/ is the best photographer I've seen on HP by a long shot, but she only has 317 followers and many hubbers may not have seen her work....
