    We've noticed that some members upload rediculously large images.  :155:

    That does no favours for those who are viewing them on mobile devices as they can take an age to load. Also, over time, large images contribute substantially to our hosting costs and make the site difficult to manage. We already have around 7GB of images alone and it's rising steadily.

    Consequently, can we suggest that you compress your images prior to upload. You can use an online service like Tiny PNG:

    You can compress both jpg's and png images using their online service making them far smaller in file size.

    Importantly, they look just as good when viewed  :152:
