Reducing File Size / Sharing Photos / Album Help

    Greetings!
    I have taken a series of photos of a local street that is in a bad state of
    repair. I plan on sharing these photos with the city street department and
    certain city officials in an attempt to bring about the much-needed repair.
    At this time the 60 photos total about 100 MB, running from 698 KB to 2.6 MB
    in size. All are Exif-JPEG @ 1984 x 1488.
    I would like to put these into a public, online album, and share them with
    an email link.
    Questions:
    1. Where can I find free, online, shareable storage that will allow me to
    upload 60 MB worth of photos?
    2. What is the best way to reduce the file size of the photos without
    losing the clarity? Will the details of the street's condition be lost if I
    re-save the photos in a lesser resolution? If I do re-save the photos to a
    different resolution, what is recommended?
    3. Are there any other items I need to be aware in sharing these photos?
    4. I am considering putting copyright marks on each photo. How is this
    best accomplished?

    Any / all suggestions are appreciated!

    TIA!

    It's not free, but the cost is trivial to open an account with Fototime
    or any of a half dozen other picture sharing websites.
    There are actually a few free sites but they make the viewer watch
    pop-up ads :-( (No free lunch).
    You can leave the images at high resolution to preserve detail because
    Fototime allows the viewer to look at the pictures at several different
    resolutions from thumbnails to full size.
    see: http://www.fototime.com for details

    I think if you take that approach, the city engineering department will
    simply brush you off as a trouble-maker/lunatic. If someone asked me to look
    through 60 photos on-line, I'd simply say, "Thank you, we'll look into it,"
    and get on with doing something else.

    If you expect them to look at your pictures, cut it down to 3 or 4 photos.
    If you can't show the road problems in that many pictures, I'd say the road
    doesn't need repair.

    Why?

    Do you really want to imply that you're restricting what your
    audience can do with the images? Are the pictures such high art that
    someone would consider stealing them and making their own fortune off
    them?
