I was just wondering if it would help if the pictures that are stored here were thumbnails? That way they would take up less space and wouldn't it cost less to store them too?
For pics that are stored on TCS computers, anything that reduces the kilobyte file size, will reduce the burden on the server. (It wouldn't matter for linked files though.) So yes, if you mean thumbnails being the smaller pic vs the original large pic, that would definitely be a smaller file and lessen the burden.
For those of you that have image editing software like Photoshop you can reduce the file size of images by clicking on "Save File for Web" and choose a medium jpeg rather than high or highest jpeg setting.
