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?

Now I can't seem to size the pics right to fit the article spacing.Yesterday I tried to change a pic in my highest rated hub and ended up this morning with it plummeting to my second...

Hi everyone! Hope everybody's day is off to a fantastic start.I had a quick question, and couldn't find an answer after browsing the forums. Does anyone know what the ideal image size is for your Hubs (i.e. the main photo for each of your articles)? I've noticed that when the...

In my opinion, one of the fastest ways of making a site look tacky and really poor quality is to include oversized images which are way bigger than they are in reality so they look pixelated rather than sharp.In addition, huge images do not always read well on mobile devices.I know HubPages wants...

Been fixing my lens/hubs and this morning I worked on the story about my Dirty Family Secret.Everything looks okay (though I'm concerned how to deal with that duel module) except for one photo in the slideshow.On Squidoo, this photo looked just fine. Hub Pages blow it up huge as possible and of...

I am writing a hub entitled 'How to spot a bad web designer' and one of the things I need to do is to illustrate a number of image quality issues. Unfortunately, HubPages reduce the quality of images dramatically completely obliterating my examples with JPEG artifacts. I can't see any way to host...

Is it possible to make photographs show up smaller? I have found that sometimes the photos become a bit pixelated and generally take up too much room on my web pages, and would like a facility to alter the size and placement, like you can on some other sites.You can see what I mean with this...
