355 As I am sort of getting back into posting on my site, and as I look around at the various other high heels sites, it seems to me that the images being posted are dropping in size and/or resolution. I am not too sure why this would be the case.
One theory might be that most picture sites, such as Instagram and Facebook (and possibly Tumblr and WordPress), reduce the size and/or increase the compression of your posted images as you post them if they are considered too big. They do this because storage costs them money and even by just dropping the resolution on your posted pictures by 20 percent can reduce the size of the saved image by as much as 50 percent.
Plus, if you have already saved you picture with compression, which you are doing if you save it as a JPG—whether you know it or not—then compression done again as you upload it is compression on top of the compression you have done.
As a general rule, sites where you upgrade to the paid Pro version offer an option to not automatically reduce the size or resolution of your posted images.
I know for sure that SquareSpace, where this site is hosted, does not play with the size and/or compression of your posted images.
But, whatever the reason, I am finding that a much higher percentage of pictures on the sites I have been using no longer have hi-resolution images posted.
Following are a few examples of current posts.
As copied from the source site, this post is only 533 pixels wide and the compression is 50 percent.
