Uploading images

Before uploading an image, you need to check that the file size is not too large, and compress it if necessary (see Sourcing and Preparing Images).   Typically, large high quality images should be kept between 100K and 60K. Smaller images should be closer to 30K and lower – guidance from WordPress.com.  The following video shows you how to upload an image to a VLE tool such as a wiki or a blog (it will work for either).

If you want to archive, tag, document and share images, you could use a photosharing site such as Flickr.
