Woo-hoo! New "Galleries" feature is great!
So remember how difficult it was to post photo albums on the old site? Check out the new Galleries feature -- it is so easy to use. Just create an album for yourself in My Gallery and then follow the prompts. Although the prompts say that your photos have to be no bigger than 97 KB and 600 x 600 pixels, the system somehow re-sizes your photos -- so just go ahead and upload them, no worries. (I was afraid that I would have to do the file compression myself -- it can be done in Picasa, but Picasa is not effortless. This new system is as close to effortless as any photo posting device I have ever seen.)
After posting, I clicked on one of my photos and then saved it to my computer, and then I checked out the file size. It was greatly reduced, which is terrific. I did notice that if I substantially enlarged a downloaded photo, the image was kind of grainy, which is to be expected -- a lot of detail is lost as a result of compression.
Well done, Janet H!!
