General WordPress information

I have recently discovered that when posting photographs to wordpress the storage usage can be enormous.

It may be noticeable on this site that photographs have recently become smaller. This is because I am now posting pictures with a maximum height/width of 1080 pixels.

A larger view of the photograph can be seen by clicking on the photo’.

Apparently if a photograph is posted at the maximum resolution WordPress saves it at that and several smaller alternatives, thus taking up more storage space.

I do not have time or knowledge to re-edit my previous posts, but will use the 1080px limit in future.
