Deleting old photos.

dsc_2388_optimized

Every so often I delete old photos off my phone. Then all the photos that are left get mixed up and I discover old photos like this one that I really like! Basically I do this because the photos are taking up most of the phones memory. I have thousands of pictures. Today I got rid of a couple of hundred old pictures of grey skies and trees. And I also got rid of duplicate images because when I post to Instagram it saves an extra picture.

Another issue is that my phone camera takes Megabyte, not kilobyte sized pictures. It means that when I save them to WordPress the media files take up a lot if space. I’m on about 78% on my plan, and I expanded that earlier in the year. So, how do i reduce my file sizes without losing image quality? The answer is I let my anti virus software review the pictures and replace them with smaller versions. It doesn’t stop my phone taking large files though and I would like to find out how to do this. Must be in settings somewhere….

Sorry if this is boring…

  1. Should be in your camera phone settings, though I prefer to take the high res files so you can crop them if needed. You can use an app like Handy photo to edit and save a small copy.
    You can also upload your images to Google photos and access them from your WordPress library (I think you have to link them in WordPress) so then your not using up your WordPress size quota 🙂
    I reckon if you did a search you would find a tutorial on how to do it.
