    I have for years had all my website images resized to 400x300 pixels but someone told me this might be to small and I need to have photos that are at least 600x450 to show my photos to better effect. I was unsure if this was true as I do not want people having to scroll down the page to view my images as I like my sites to be as user friendly as possible. Can anyone adivise on if larger images are better or not? thanks.

    Personally I set mine to 800 pixels on the longest dimension, they show much better, but possibly make it easier for the cons to rip them if (if they wanted one that is!). I have never had any complaints that they load slowly.

    E2 pics are 1000px along the long edge. If I look back to my pre-E2 pics (600px) they look small.

    Do you think that when it comes to weddings photos people prefer to see larger photos. I was just conscious that because so many people view websites on small mobile devices it might be harder for them to navigate back to the other pages if they are trying to scoll up a page for the other links.

    get a responsive website and they should be resized for any device, automatically, by your website.... clever stuff out there these days

    I resize all to 800x600 it seems to be OK for most hosting sites and load within a reasonable time. You can adjust the compression when saving a resized image, just be careful of artefacts as the resolution drops.

    The netbook that I use for casual browsing has 1024x600 screen resolution. 800x600 images look good on it and load fast.
