Chris The Story Reading Ape's Blog
Have you been using images that are VERY LARGE, and/or, PNG Format?
Have you been reblogging and noticed how LARGE, some folks make their images?
Running out of space in your WordPress Media Storage and thinking about paying for more?
Unless you are displaying your own images / photos, and WANT to have them full size
Before you spend any money, go through your Media Storage images and reduce their sizes
You might be shocked at how much longer you can work with the storage space you save.
Select an image and click on it to see it’s size (width x height in pixels)
how much it ‘weighs’ (i.e., how many KB or MB it is):
My example has already been adjusted, but you can see it’s size and weight
To reduce them, click on the Edit Image button shown under the image:

Good advice. Thanks, Irene. It’s always nice when a page with lots of photographs loads quickly.
I agree Gary and this here will help me a lot too.
Awesome Info and thanks for sharing this Irene. I might have to at some point go through all my pictures
Chris was so kind to help me to go into my media library, because I was into the new, where I couldn’t change anything. Now I can and it will take a while, before I’m through all my photos for more than 4 1/2 years…..
Wow, it will be a huge undertaking for me as well even though it hasn’t been that long
Thanks for sharing, Irene ❤️
Yes, Chris is really kind to share his knowledge 🙂
Excellent tips! Very helpful.
Thanks for sharing.
You are welcome. Chris is very kind to share his knowledge with us 🙂
Thanks for the share, Irene. I’ve been blogging for more then 5 years and still have a lot of storage for my photos. I always resize before I import. Much Love to you!! 💝
You are welcome Amy. I will need to use much time to resize all my photos, especially the nature photos, where many of my photos are really huge, like between 8-12 mb for each one. This demands much space. Chris have helped me much here.
All I can say is good luck! I know how time consuming that is. It’s not hard once you know what you are doing …. So glad you have help!! 🙂
Thank you, Amy. In the beginning of my blogging time, I didn’t see this with the maximum sizes, otherwise I would have changed it from the beginning too.
Mostly of my jewelry photos are small, but some of the nature photos are really huge and take up lots of space. By time, I will get through all of them.
Thank you Irene!
You are welcome Lisa. I think, that we are many, who can use Chris’ great advice.
Thanks for sharing this. Will pop over to Chris as I am nearly out of space. Sounds like a good idea.
It is and it has helped me much with my space too.
I’ve made a start 👍🏻 😄
Thank you for sharing, Irene.
You are welcome Sylvester. I thought, that we were many, who could have joy of Chris’ great advice here 🙂
I definitely agree 😊
Good to know! Thank you Irene 💛
You are welcome. I just wished to share Chris’ great advice here.
I like to upload full sized images and resize them in WordPress. They seem to look cleaner. And it’s always better to have reduce the amount of bandwidth a post uses.Good advice.
Thank you Robert 🙂
Your idea is also usable for resizing.
Excellent advice. Thank you for sharing.
Chris has many great ideas, thank you 🙂
Great advice. People think that big images change something. In fact, the monitor can only show resolution of 72 px. Big pixels we need for printing, not for the Web. Heavy images are a big nuisance. They are opening very slow and who has time to wait until my page loads? No one 🙂 Simple software that comes with Windows has a resizing function and some other basic editing functions. No need to go online, everything is already in computer. I post 15-30 images on each blog, and still use my 10 Euros I paid for my storage 4 years ago 🙂
Until now I haven’t paid for storage and with this advice, I will have storage for a while yet.
Loading time is important. I always resize most of my images. It can be so that I forget to resize some pictures, but most of them should load quite quickly. We have lots of software to do this with just one click. I have many thousands of images for blogs and all other sites. Well, resizing is the easiest part.
It’s good you reminded bloggers about this.
Thank you, Inese. Chris are doing great with his ideas, why I also chose to share his post. We can all use this knowledge.
This was a very useful tip Irene, I am so pleased you did, I have many images on my site and very little space left for uploads.. 🙂 So thank YOU xx x<3
I’m happy, that you can use Chris’ advice too, Sue. He is so creative and come up with many great blog ideas. Love to you ❤
Thank you Irene.. I have saved a little space already, I have many photos to adjust , I have been through one years worth and hopefully when WP next review my space, the percentage allowed will have increased, 🙂
I’m not that far yet, but it will come 😀
I remembered this post and went back to it….with all of the pictures I post, have been going back into the library and reducing them…huge difference….thanks again for sharing this post, Irene!
You are very welcome, Kirt 🙂
