I love this – I think it’s assumed that everyone knows the basics but then you realise that they don’t.
If it’s OK though can I add one more?

Don’t forget to use ALT TEXT on your images – not only is it ESSENTIAL for users with disabilities but it’s also great for helping your SEO ranking (google will give you plus points for demonstrating a relationship between the words in your ALT text and the words on your page).
I hope I don’t sound too preachy – I don’t mean to
Also a great tip, thanks for sharing that Angie!
Thanks for this post. Revamping my blog is one of this year’s ‘musts’ and better caring for my images is something I can do myself.
Great advice, Jo. I hadn’t given much thought to deleting all those picture links that just lead to the same image somewhere else.
Thanks for these tips! I had never thought of deleting the image links that lead nowhere either!
I also never realized that the format in which the images are saved matters.
I have a question that probably sounds stupid, but should the size of the images be changed in camera or once they are downloaded?
Thanks for the tips, i now have more of an edge to improve my site.
