Tom Rogers here with my first post. I became a BC partner in 2009, and are about to close down my last site which is now here at Siteglide. 

The site allows uploading of up to six images that become part of classified ads. The issue is that most of the uploads are averaging over 3MB each - way larger than needed. 

The storage limits here are pretty stingy, so unless I we can figure out a way to reduce the file size, the client will end up paying extra each month. 

I would like the images to be resized to a maximum size of 543 x 724, and optimized if possible as they are being uploaded. Any ideas welcome:)
