Thanks, I am checking that out now!
But what about the difference between the computer and a laptop or maybe size of person's screen causing a difference?
Does "optimize" mean downsize the pixels per inch/ resolution?
Does it mean crop to width of my theme's column?
That didn't seem to be specified at all in the link about optomizing...
I don't usually resize, though I do crop---not to change the size, just to pick out what I want to show out of my raw photo. I've always been a little confused when inserting a photo, by the choice we have to make between sizes---I think it's thumbnail, small, med, large, original---I think sometimes original is shown as being smaller than the "large" option for a specific image, which seems impossible.
Should I be resizing (resolution? inches?) my photos beforehand to a "reasonably large, but not as big as original" size, if I want people to be able to click for more details, yet not have my pages load too slowly? I have a fast connection, so I cant tell if it's slow to load for others...
