Just joined PhotoBox and tried uploading 40 photos but it said estimated upload time was 30 mins - is this about right or am I saving my pics in large files and if so, how do I reduced their size????!!!!

It can take ages to upload to photobox. DH uploads high res shots and generally just sets it running and then goes off to get a cuppa, do another job etc.

you know you can email as attachments rather than upload? i find this A Lot easier. (although i really hate the new Photobox site, for the record).

Whilst you may have fast broadband for downloading you probably have (at the most) 1/2 to 3/4 Meg for uploads.
You need to upload the large detailed photos or you pictures will look grainy when printed, so I suggest you do what I do and leave them running overnight.

Thanks very much for useful replies - I thought I was doing something wrong so will def leave it to run and do something else!
