Anyway, as a solution for you and anyone else using similar posting style i could suggest to try:
1. Using medium or thumbnail BB code instead of full image code. If you already do, then try some other imagehost. As example, Pimp&Host and Imagetwist work like charm with their 500pix width thumbnails, you don't have to worry about hosted image size. Or you may try asking owner of your favorite imagehost to implement this option too, it could save their server traffic too.
2. Using different software to generate previews. I see your images are the same resolution like video, but there are thumbnail generators that could reduce exported images to 500pix width. It could do the trick and save you from troubles with our 250kb limit.
