Resizing photos

With modern digital cameras, pictures are getting very large, and uploading them to a site is slower; viewing them is a bit slower too. Therefore it is a good idea to resize them prior to uploading them anywhere.

Note that if you resize it to something smaller, you won't be able to revert to something bigger without losing quality. Therefore you should resize copies, preserving the larger original for other cases.

Resizing them to 1024x768 will be good enough; if they are already smaller, leave the size unchanged.
