Blogger Tip 01 – How to Resize Images inside your WordPress Media and SAVE STORAGE SPACE..

Have you been using images that are VERY LARGE, and/or, PNG Format?

Have you been reblogging and noticed how LARGE, some folks make their images?


Running out of space in your WordPress Media Storage and thinking about paying for more?

Unless you are displaying your own images / photos, and WANT to have them full size

Before you spend any money, go through your Media Storage images and reduce their sizes

You might be shocked at how much longer you can work with the storage space you save.

Step 1:

Select an image and click on it to see it’s size (width x height in pixels)


how much it ‘weighs’ (i.e., how many KB or MB it is):

Step 2

My example has already been adjusted, but you can see it’s size and weight

To reduce them, click on the Edit Image button shown under the image:

Step 3

Adjust the size

I use either 600 wide, OR, 300 high

because each WP post width allowance is only 600 pixels.

Authors Please Note:

Although it is tempting to display your book covers full size

at least use JPG Format and NOT use PNG format.


Just use 6oo wide JPG images

They’ll STILL look awesome

For Example:

My Mum’s book cover sizes and weights:

2000 x 3000 pixels PNG is 3.5MB

2000 x 3000 pixels JPG is 1MB

600 x 900 pixels JPG (shown below) is 145 KB (0.145MB)

at 200 x 300 pixels JPG (see below) it is 24 KB (0.024MB)
