Can anyone advise on the best size of image to use on HubPages? I know there's a maximum size which I think is about 5 Mb. But what is the best size? Too small and the image is poor. Too large and maybe with some connections the images take too long to load? With broadband I don't think it's too much of a problem, but I use a lot of pictures on some of my pages, and I worry they may take too long for some users?
Try using the middle size. although it will depend on the quality of the image. If it looks poor use the smaller one.
Thanks for that, but what would you suggest is a middle size? 100 Kb, 1 Mb? I do use an image size which looks clear to me, but the worry I have is more to do with speed of loading. Even if it loads OK on my computer with my connection, I want to be sure that visitors to the site with possibly slower connection speeds will not have to wait ages for images to load.
To display at full size a picture should be at least 500 pixels wide. If it is smaller it will pixelate, if it is larger it will be automatically downsized.
Thanks for the reply, but I think maybe I'm not using the right terminology. What I am interested in is how long a particular image will take to apppear on a page, not the quality of image. if a computer is low on power or only updates slowly, as I understand it a large megabyte image takes a long time to appear. What size of image do I have to use to ensure that on all computers it will appear almost instantly, when someone visits my page?

I can't find this anywhere. Does anyone know the maximum height and width dimensions you can use on HubPages?

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...
