I am running photopost and vBulletin? Version 3.8.3.
(I'm working on getting photopost license info to get into support area)
site is azflyandtie.com

photopost is using 4.3 GB and I want to reduce its size.

1. is there something built in to do this?
2. can i download, resize and re-upload files in the data folders?

or some better idea that I haven't thought of.

I'm also concerned because statistics say disk space is 2.5GB....

well everything sounds normal. Basically doing the match your using relatively about an average of 566kb worth of diskspace for each photo ( meaning the original image medium and thumbnail )

You can set your max dimensions in upload options to say 1500 an under if they are larger and this will make your larger images smaller etc when you upload newer photos. You can likewise lower your medium and thumbnail sizes and rebuild medium and thumbnail images to save some space but nothing is wrong with the number of photos versus space. Diskspace is not something you need to worry too much nowadays unless your on cheap hosting.
