Should photos be compressed and optimized before uploading to a hub to speed display of a page for those with a slow Internet connection or are they automatically compressed by the Hubpages website when the hub is published?
The best I can tell HubPages doesn't change anything in our pictures when we upload them. So you defiantly should be considering file size and amount of compression used to speed things up for the user.
For photographs of real life items like people, places and things that have a lot of color and detail variations in the picture I'd recommend saving them in the .jpg file format at a 85% compression level. Typically 85% gives you a decent file size with little to no visible compression artifacts. Sometimes you can even compress them more than 85%, a lower number, and still get a good looking picture. Just be careful that the compression artifacts don't become to visible.
For images that have large areas that are all the same color and doesn't use many different colors, less than 255 preferably or not many more that, usually a .gif format will result in a smaller file size. GIF's have no compression settings.

.......and the hub has an alert especially for a violation which in fact it doesn't, does it automatically affect your account/hubscore? Do staff automatically check hubs which the auto-filters have tagged?Is there a way to fix the auto-filters so that it doesn't keep making mistakes?

Under 'my account'? I've had this happen for two hubs that were copied but the copyright symbol appeared next to the title at the same time (or I noticed it at the same time). Luckily, I got the content removed as it was hosted on an amazon review and yahoo answers.My latest copied article was...
