I know this will be posted elsewhere, but my searching terms ain't findin' it so please point me in the direction if you can.
my query is how do *you* post an image to AP? i've followed the FAQ and found that 250kb is the max jpeg the site will host...and I think I understand the reasons why.
but after preparing an image of my own (longest edge 1024p) taking the original down to that size makes it look plain awful (using CS5 jpeg compression on my 5.1MB file).
so do people generally host it elsewhere and then embed it, and if so, who do you use for your hosting? or do you have special PS-ninja skills that can make a 250kb file look tops? (please share!)
