    Wait... It's actually supposed to say that the picture weighs X amount?
    What odd terminology...


    I actually thought that weighs, or as it was weights, was just the person doing it (red?) trying to be cool and/or different.

    You don't see the yellow bar above Red's image? It says:
    This image has been resized. Click this bar to view the full image. The original image is sized 1024x683 and weighs 36KB.

    Perhaps...
    Is it a UK thing to call file size a "weight", possibly?
    Have you looked in the FAQ yet?
    How about the Wiki?

    No it's kind of hip talk, it's become bit of a thing now to say things in a way that they aren't normally said, play on words type of thing.

    Interestingly, I see "This image has been resized. Click this bar to view the full image. The original image is sized 1024x683." Maybe i'm a bit special.

    And no, we dont call filesizes weights. We do other interesting things, like call elephant nose's trunks - which of course bares no respemblance to the bit you store your luggage in a car :P

    I see no "weighs" or "weights" either. Strange.

    But us foreigners do spell all the "-iour" words correctly.

    I'm not seeing it any longer, either.
    Maybe Red's been tinkering, again.
