There's a terrific article in the September 2008 edition of Professional Artist Magazine by Steve Meltzer. I can't find an online version, but for all who are perplexed about DPI, PPI, and resizing digital images, pick up a copy of Art Calendar from your news stand and check out “A Primer on Putting Pictures on the Web.” (pages 34-35)
We also touched on digital photos in Web Site Basics: How to Get Your Art Online without Spending a Fortune.

It’s amusing that an article about putting images online isn’t available online itself. And sad.
Fran: I think they want you to buy magazines! And who can blame them?
Yes, they do want you to subscribe. For $32 a year, you can subscribe to their e-magazine. Follow this link: http://www.artcalendar.com/subscriptions/ You can also sign up for their Free Newsletters. They do have free articles also online that might be of interest to artists.
Mary: Thanks for that! I write for AC and I didn’t even know they had an e-magazine!
I am subscribed to the printed Art Calendar as well as the newsletter. They are an absolutely awesome artist’s resource! Well worth the price! Even better, as a member of my local Artist’s Equity branch, I can subscribe to Art Calendar for a discounted price. I don’t know if that is a regional thing or not, but it is worth checking into!
