Part 2 – How to Reduce the Number of Images Required in Your WordPress Media and SAVE STORAGE SPACE from Chris.
WP TIP 1
If you use more than one image in your posts, then use WordPress Publicize to automatically upload your post to Twitter, Facebook, etc, or, manually upload them, the image last inserted into your post, is the one that will be displayed on your media.
To avoid the wrong image being displayed, either:
Insert it LAST
Select it as your ‘Featured Image’
Authors especially would probably prefer their Book Cover being displayed, rather than some other, random, image.
WP TIP 2
If you opt for using a Featured image, or, have the same image appear more than once in your post (as I’ve done on this post):
You DO NOT NEED to upload the same image for each separate appearance!
Select the same image to be inserted wherever you want it to be shown in the post.
This will save taking up unnecessary space in your media…

Very good post from Chris on resizing your images to save storage space in WordPress so you don’t have to upgrade. No use spending money we don’t have to spend. I’ll be doing this tonight. #Winning
Have you been using images that are VERY LARGE, and/or, PNG Format?
Have you been reblogging and noticed how LARGE, some folks make their images?
Running out of space in your WordPress Media Storage and thinking about paying for more?
Unless you are displaying your own images / photos, and WANT to have them full size
Before you spend any money, go through your Media Storage images and reduce their sizes
You might be shocked at how much longer you can work with the storage space you save.
Select an image and click on it to see it’s size (width x height in pixels)
how much it ‘weighs’ (i.e., how many KB or MB it is):
My example has already been adjusted, but you can see it’s size and weight
To reduce them, click on the Edit Image button shown under the image:

I am off today as usual and I’m actually not at home but I wanted to share the first official review for Nora. A special thank you to Rachel for taking the time to read and review my book. Her honest feedback is just what I need to make improvements before the big day.
Title: Renaissance: The Nora White Story
Author: Yecheilyah Ysrayl
Published: July 15, 2017
Genre: Historical Fiction
How I got the book: I received a free eARC from the author in exchange for an honest review
When seventeen-year-old NoraWhite successfully graduates High School in 1922 Mississippi and is College bound, everyone is overjoyed and excited. Everyone except Nora. She dreams of Harlem, Cotton Clubs, Fancy Dresses, and Langston Hughes. For years, she’s sat under Mr. Oak, the big oak tree on the plush green grass of her families five acres, and daydreamed of The Black Mecca.
The ambitious, young Nora is fascinated by the prospect of being a famous writer in The Harlem Renaissance and decides she doesn’t want to go to College. Despite her parent’s staunch protest, Nora finds herself in Jacobsville, New York, a small town forty-five minutes outside of Harlem.
Shocked by their daughter’s…
