Size of Photo For Posting On the Net

Size: 1166x773pixels – 72ppi. Please click on the image to enlarge

Recently someone ask me a question regarding image sizing, “What is the right size of photo for posting on the net like for example flickr?” Here’s how I do it. The maximum size of photos that I upload on my flickr account and on my gallery is 1168pixels x 768pixels and I set the resolution to 72ppi (pixels per inch) like the photo above, and the minimum is at 550pixels x 350pixels and the resolution still set at 72ppi. Please see photo below

With a resolution of 72ppi, the filesize of my photos are reasonably small, easy to upload and email to someone if needed and isn’t that good when printed without authorization.
