The right image sizes for websites

They didn't really understand the problem they'd created and it's safe to assume that a lot of other people don't either. The problem in question was making a new page for their website that took a full two minutes to load, even on our reasonably fast broadband connection... The page was a mixture of text and some product photographs that had been carefully (and quite well) taken the day before - 26 images to be precise - each one uploaded to the website in full, straight off the camera resolution and then made the right size in the website's editing pages. Image sizes. As web developers, we understand how digital images work because we need to, but most people don't. If the page has maybe one large image, it shouldn't be too noticable - start to do the same with five, ten or more images and things are going to get very slow... The right way to do it.

Best Monitors for Photo Editing : Is it REALLY that important?

The quick answer: YES, absolutely. IF YOU CAN’T SEE THE COLOR AND TONAL DIFFERENCES on your monitor, then you can’t make good post-processing decisions and adjustments to your digital negatives. It’s that simple. You can’t adjust your curves to give your print smooth tonal transitions or to distinguish subtle shadow detail if you can’t see those transitions and details to begin with.
