Another good idea with big pictures is to set up the .JPG file to load
progressively: this causes the picture to be completely visible at the
beginning, but becoming sharper as the downloaded continues. This makes
it easier to decide if you want to wait or abort.

With most picture handling tools, this is an option to check in the
"save as..." box, usually visible only after the file type has been
selected as ".JPG".
