I was wondering what you guys recommend when it comes to uploading photos. I have a bunch of high resolution photos that are being displayed in a slider. I set up the slider to show about 300x200px images for faster loading times.
However, I am wondering whether to just to upload a truer dimension to the original size (say, around 1200x800), and then let Wordpress resize it for the sliders.
The main benefit I can think of is that my images will be more appealing in Google image searches, since a 1200x800 will be clicked more than a 300x200px.
The main downside I can think of would be relying on Wordpress's resizing algorithim, which could be less efficient than resizing it myself. Each page has around 15 images being shown, so if Wordpress does a bad job of resizing the pictures, the load times may suffer badly.
What do you do when uploading images?
