Do you compress your images before uploading them to your Hub?
I was just wondering whether actually compressing the images has any effect on the page load speed of our Hubs.
They are not too strict with size on Hub as some other sights. Also when you start a sub the main picture can be sized differently. Open your photo and on the far right side of the box you will see a width box. This will make the pic 25 or 50% if you prefer to make it smaller than the original. I do not notice any effect on the page load speed yet. So far so good. Hope this helps.
Hi Powerful Pierre, I know it's encouraged to place images into hubs and I always do, I tend to display my images at 50% size when inserting into a hub, was concerned that too many full size images might have an affect on page speed. Does Hubpages compress images when they are uploaded do you know? Is it something to be concerned about at all, I am just curious to know.
Thanks for your answer.
Compressing images, while maintaining acceptable visual clarity can have a very positive effect on the page load times of your hub pages.
Google ( and other search engines ) also seem to love web pages that load quickly.
If you would like to read about how to compress your images prior loading them into you web pages do take a quick look at a hub I've written:

Hope this is of use to you.

I just published a new Hub and the site comes up with an error when I try to upload an image. Just to check, I tried uploading an image already present on another one of my hubs (so it must be consistent with technical requirements) into the new one and got the same error. What's going on?

Whenever I try and put an image into a hub from the internet it is leaving the bottom area grey, is there a known bug or issue at the moment, only noticed this after I published a hub :s oooops!

I just published a hub "Returning to School after Forty" and the when I view it the photos are not showing up. Can somebody let me know if they are having a problem viewing the photos? I need to know if it is just my computer or if I need to delete them and try to put new ones up. Thank...

When images are uploaded, they get scaled to a max dimension of 1024 pixels wide (the fully zoomed version that is). However are they compressed to any degree? I know this is something we should do ourselves before uploading in order to see the effects, but even a small amount of compression can...

Does anyone know a way around this? Apparently it used to be possible to upload images as PNG files, but they compress them now also.
