    Resize the image to ~1000 pixels in the largest dimension, and save as a JPEG and it will usually be fine - adjusting the JPEG compression might be wanted if there's a lot of detail. IMO this is generally a good idea when sharing photos on-line anyway.

    Forum guideline is 800 pixel on the longest edge which fits nicely into the web page. If the image is much bigger then the web browser just throws away the extra pixels to make it fit and the results won't be as good as achieved with an image editor. For reasons unknown to me, resizing is often found as a step in the image export command and not a command on its own. This might be to try to avoid people overwriting the original. A jpeg with max side 800 pixels will only be about 200 kb in size so "quality" often used as a compression option can be high (low or no compression)
