I agree John. I love seeing everyone else photos. This picture opened up fine, not slow at all. And one of the main reasons I like to make the images small, with a link to something a little bigger, is because I share too many pictures. That way my post doesn't become a mile long because of photos taking up so much space.
I should actually make the picture that's linked even bigger, but that would mean I'd have to store those big pictures too. 1) It takes a long time for a big picture to upload somewhere, and 2) I'd want to have the original still on my computer just incase - that takes up lots of storage on my part.
