First login to TorontoHiking.com in order to post a blog.
Before you begin to publish your blog, please take some time to optimize your images. That means reducing your image size to no wider than 800 px. It is also helpful to reduce the image quality to 30% of the original which will reduce the file size and reduce demands on our server. This reduction in quality will not be noticeable on displays. Free image programmes are available to do this. One example is the online image optimizer http://www.imageoptimizer.net/Pages/Home.aspx .
Here you can set image max width to 800 and select Quality as "Small file size" for optimization. There are also many free image programmes you can download for this purpose.
Please limit the number of images in your blog to no more than 5. You may make these secondary images smaller than the main photo which is the first image in the article. DO NOT paste code from another site into the blog editor. Remove the formatting first and paste in text only. Thank you for helping us to keep file size to a minimum and the code clean. See instructions below for inserting text from a Word document.
