Large Camera Images and Web Formatting Them

 
Large images taken on a camera should be converted to a web format, which has a much smaller filesize (ie 1/30th) for faster downloads and no stretched distortion. You can use a photo editing application liek Photoshop or a free website like picmonkey.com (used in video) to create web formatted images.

Otherwise it will take a little trial and error, here's a few image samples to give you an idea about what image widths to use.
