    Could somebody please tell me what could be an effect of having large image sizes in NextGEN Gallery plugin?

    I know that if I upload a large image size without reducing the actual size it might slow down page upload of my site.

    What do you think about what would be the effect if I upload large size image into the NextGEN plugin without reducing the size.

    Could it still slow down the page load of my site?

    Thanks for any insight.

    The same thing will may occur. I don’t believe NextGEN has the capability to reduce the file size. You may want to review the NextGEN documentation to see what sizes they recommend.

    what image size would you recommend to update on a site that would not have much negative impact on the site loading speed?

    Upload images at the size you need them to be. Anything bigger is a waste of resources.
