A bit too late for images already online, but if you’re using Backlight’s Publisher, then you might want to run images through JPEGMini before uploading. If you’re using Lightroom’s Publisher, then you’re sort of at Lightroom’s mercy – and Lightroom definitely does not create images small as they could be – but you might want to reduce the export quality of your images.
Great. Then JPEGmini would be a valuable investment for you. I keep it open most of the time on my desktop, and find that it drastically reduces the size of my uploads without compromising image quality. Nothing goes to the Internet without first going through JPEGmini.
I also have a reaction to this (I am a friend of Henk) I use 15GB (Backlight 2) … and 44,000+ pictures
And also looking for backup option now made backup with Transmit (V4) but error messages with “sess_” files? but downloaded is that a problem?
