Anything over about 640 x 480 with lots of detail will need to be over 100Kb to lot have serious compression artifacts.

A Wiki on this sounds like a grand idea.

then use an intermediary for files bigger than 100k or bigger then 1000pixel.
But don't direct the intermediary to auto download big files.
Make it compulsory to thumbnail the big files and let the member choose which pics to download.

Here is a 1 MB photo reduced to 76 KB with 1000 pixel max count. Still seems to look OK.

Perfect. And that's a tough one because of all the foliage detail.

It can be done. (And I may budge a bit to, say, 150K. The trouble is that most images will hit that size then, even when they don't need to.)

So yeah, we need to get working on an image wiki - it would be a good thing.

I guess we are going a little off topic but there it was just a couple SS receivers. I now have bigger stuff and don't use the set up the same way.

Back to topic.
