Recently, I downloaded a file from the net that was described as a "great u.f.o. pic". Now, this file was over 1 meg. in size and took a considerable amount of time to download, not to mention how long it took to load into my viewer offline. The image was 16" x 20 " -- of sky. The *u.f.o.* (smack dab in the center of the shot) was about the size of a quarter! Without changing the number of colors, file type, or the resolution, simply by cropping out all the unnecessary background, I was able to reduce the file size to around 25K. When I was done, I sat back and shook my head. I had just spent the better part of an hour to get a 25K picture.

Admittedly, this is the very worst example of this kind of phenomenon (the perpetuation of wasting time and money and space), but I find this sort of thing all over the net. I don't mean to sound uptight or beligerent (I'm a nice person, really!), but even with a high speed modem, I have no desire to waste my time online, my harddrive space, or my time altering images. However, since I have already done a great deal of this, there is no reason for you to have to go through the same maddening process.
