    Problem Hosting Picutres. (I have 621MB of pictures, but I can only host 100MB)

    Is there a way to compress these pictures, to make the file size smaller?

    They are JPG

    Well apart from zipping them try optimizing them, There is no way you will shave off that extra 500mb but you may squeeze in some more images.

    You need a bigger host.

    Yeah... thats how the world works


    What kind of pictures are these? At at what optimization level? If they are at maximum, dropping them down one or 1.5 notches can shave quite a bit off the file size without compromizing quality too bad.... but it depends on the image and how many colors are displayed.

    They are JPG pictures, and they where taken outside.


    Do web hosting company's let you run stuff off of CD's?

    For example, have my webpage on their servers, but then submit to them my pictures on a CD. Then just link them to the D: drive.

    heheh nice idea but impossible

    Plus, the whole point of having a hosting account is to utilise the bandwidth that a good host can offer. I hate to think what would happen if people were trying to access files that were on your own computer...

    remember, even though you can run a webserver on your own computer with ease, you need a fast connection and a static IP. If you are on anything less than T1 you can forget it.

    What compression was the original jpeg saved at? If they've been saved at 100% quality, then the jpeg will be very large. On the other hand, if you compress them to 80%, you'll probably drop the image file size to about 20% of what it is now with very little loss in quality on the screen (remember, computer screens are only around 72-90 dpi -- anything putting screen images at any higher resolution is pointless).

    Also take alook at the image size: can this be reduced?

    It also depends what the purpose of the images is (ie to be viewed on the screen, printed out or used for something else).
