Tip of the week
While Soapbox has the ability to resize the display of images when a page loads, it is always a good idea to optimize your images by resizing the original files to the the size at which you wish them to display prior to uploading them to Soapbox.
For instance, if you have an image that is 2000 x 3000 pixels but you want that monster to display at just 200 x 300 pixels, resizing the file prior to uploading it is a very good idea.
For more on the whys and wherefores along with free and not-so-free image editing options, check out Images: Resizing images outside Soapbox.
