Ideal pixel size for resized pictures to upload properly? Answered

What is the ideal pixel size for resized pictures to upload properly? I would guess 1000x800? What picture editor would you suggest. The camera I have takes 8 meg pictures when I only need a fraction of that to see a good picture on a computer screen.

Most of the staff here tries to keep the longest edge no bigger than 2000 px wide, due to variety of ways photos may be showcased. That's typically me go-to for resizing. :)

As far as photo editors, I like to use Lightroom but I know that's not in all budgets! For Mac, iPhoto/Photos is a great free choice. For PC, the Windows Live Photo Gallery works similar to iPhoto. On both you can do quite a bit of editing and organize your photos for easier uploading! You can also try online editors like PicMonkey, but I find the online editors take much more time to get through all the photos.
