    I'm not too familiar with .mac, and I'm hoping someone who is might be able to answer a question for me.

    I shoot pretty high resolution(2272x1704 pixels, and sometimes higher). This is okay for iPhoto, but obviously overkill for the web.

    Is there any way to auto-resize the images when publishing to a .mac photo album (to say 800x600)? Or would I have to import the pictures, copy to a different folder, resize, then publish the duplicates?

    Or is there a better way to do this?

    When you choose to publish pics to your .mac hompage through iPhoto, i believe iPhoto automatically resizes pictures into thumbnails and then larger size for their "slideshow" page. I'm not 100% on this, but I publish pics all the time that are a pretty high resolution and they load up quickly from my .mac online photoalbums so I'm assuming they're being resized in the process.

    Sure. I use this and it autosizes your pictures on creation of a homepage albumn. iirc there are preferences to control the size, but they are about right to start with.
