Always ReSize Your Images before Publishing

Today we will share a quick tip that will help you ensure you have two advantages while handling images on your WordPress Blog especially if you frequently blog:

  • You dont have to deal with resizing huge Images every time
  • You dont have to spend time in reducing image file size on every upload

The above two issues could be common ones for you if you do a lot of writing from mobile devices or do light weight blogging without “photoshopping” each and every image you use on your blog post. Today, I tested out a awesome light weight plugin that helps auto resize each and every image before upload on to your server ensuring the size and resolution is as desired.

I used the Resize Image Before Upload WordPress plugin to ensure that all images are auto resized as per the media settings mentioned on your blog’s settings. Try writing a blog post with the help of this plugin and you will realize how effective the plugin works in maintaining a default image size for your blog thereby keeping uniformity.

The above image was uploaded with the help of this plugin and before upload it had a default size of 760 pixels wide and it was auto changed to 600 pixel width based on the settings. Hope this helps you to keep a default image size and not worry about the huge pixel size of images  uploaded directly from your high res phone.

Ensure that you navigate to the WordPress Settings -> Media Settings and specify the desired resolution of images to upload to ensure its auto resized to that particular size. Let me know how you feel using this awesome plugin.
