I have noticed within the past month that the photos that I post from photobucket end up about half the size. This happens on more than one forum. Therefore, I’m inclined to believe it’s something to do with photobucket.
The best example on this forum is when I post the “Welcome Back, Welcome Back, Welcome Back!” photo of the old TV show Welcome back Kotter. You will notice that the last one is about half the size (or more) as the previous one. It is the same source file.
This thread has my most recent post of this photo.
This is the **same post **from about one year ago.
This demonstrates a size difference that I can’t explain. Perhaps, there is info in the source links that can reveal why they are different in size even though they come from the same source file from the same site.
