Optimize Images

Duplicate the image you are using, save the original if you need it and shrink the copy.

Rename the copy to a suitable name, then open it in  Preview on mac (or similar software on PC).

Select Adjust Size from the Tool Menu:

Then with both blue boxes clicked, and the dropdown next to width & height set to “pixels”, set the largest edge of your image to 800 (the other will change automatically). For example if your width =1600 and your height=1200, the width will default to 600).

Make sure the resolution is set to 72.

Save image–it is now ready to upload to your post.

You can then create a gallery/carousel by selecting “Add Media”  then selecting the Gallery option. Then choose the images you want in your gallery.
