When adding a gallery to your website, it’s important that you don’t upload images that exceed a resolution of 1024x768.

Here are a few reasons why it’s not recommended

  • Wastes Bandwidth.
  • Not all monitors support high resolution images.
  • Affects site speed for visitors that have slow internet connection.

The below tutorial will explain how to re-size multiple images for your gallery. Please note that this can also be done in Microsoft Paint, but for this tutorial lets say you have quite a few images to re-size.

* Step 1

Download a program called adionSoft Fast Image Resizer from the following link Download
