Testing image sizes

I am getting the hang of adding galleries to the Base theme, but have to decide on image size and image quality to add to the web site. I was reading the Photoshelter guide to website design and most art directors are happy with 700px wide, whereas us photographers want images to be bigger. I have also always wanted to have my images down to about 60 to 80 kilobytes in size, if possible as having larger images means that results in  increased loading times. This is not good, loading times need to be short as the other thing the Photoshelter guide mentions is people get boarded and leave, if they have to wait to long, I mean seconds for an image to diplay.
