Before I upload an image I resize to image to 7" high and 72dbi resolution with constrain proportions.  I then "save for web"  as a jpeg with a quality of 30.  This greatly reduces the size of the file and still gives a decent image.  Image sizes are from 20kb to 80kb depending on the amount of compression.

Photoshop adds a lot of data to a file that is totally not needed, thus making the image file huge. There are a lot of online image editors out there that you can use for free, no need to download anything or install anything, and you can use those to resize your images accordingly.
