When to reduce image size
You may find yourself asking the question, when is it actually necessary to reduce image size? What is the difference between a file that is simply large and ones that is so large as to be unmanageable? The answer depends on how you work with the image files. for example, if you need to upload them to a website, then the size limit depends on your upload limitations. Otherwise, the maximum size might depend on how much disk space you have available.
