What size do you recommend for the photos in the galleries?

In the photo display settings, I have large photo size checked, but the images are coming up very small. (see photo 1) I have also attached the image size for this photo. (see photo 2).
If I don't resize the image at all, it looks great on the gallery, but I am concerned about uploading so many photos at this size. (see photos 3 and 4).

There is quite a difference between 754K and 4.6M.

Any advice greatly appreciated,

I would suggest uploading photos around 1500 pixels on the longest side. And in your Sytist admin in Settings -> Photo Settings set the large max width & height to 1500.

That size the file size won't be that big and will be a good viewing size on the website.

Thank you Tim!
Do you know if there is a resizing action that would work with both vertical and horizontal images?

Thank you for creating Sytist...I love it. I had Photocart for years and loved that as well. You have created two wonderful programs.

I think you can export through lightroom if you use that and set the maximum width and height to the same value.

Try this in Photoshop:

image processor
fill out the Image Processor dialog
1. Use Open images or Select a folder
2. Select a destination folder and check keep folder structure
3. File type - check Resize to Fit

It will do all this for you, you can also run an action under 4. Preferences

Thanks Conrad. I've been using Photoshop for many years and never knew that was in scripts. It works like a charm! Its much faster than messing with 3rd party software and does more.
