Also, you should avoid using images like 3872x2592 in size (that results in 2,69MB download), since it will take a long time to download and show up at the user's computer (plus it burdens the server). Also it will take memory at the client to rescale and show it on their screen.
So you should use a program like the free Paint.net (http://www.getpaint.net - click on the "Get it now - free download" link at the top right, not on the big ads there) and do an image resize/rescale (from the Image menu in Paint.net) and Save as of the image to a smaller one before you upload to this forum to avoid having us do the rescaling. Do "save as" if you also want to keep the original image filesize, so that you don't overwrite it.
If you DO need a big zoomable image you can let me know so that I convert your big image to a DeepZoom (pyramidal) image that the Image component also supports. DeepZoom images download instantly since they bring you the appropriate tiles only that are visible on the screen, from the appropriate zoom level that they've pregenerated on the server from the original big image. When you zoom in to the max detail image you only see a part of that image usually since it doesn't fit your screen (or the Image component size on your screen in our case), so it still comes very fast to the client (also it does smooth blending of the previous image tiles while it fetches the more detailed ones when you zoom so that even with slower connections zooming looks natural/smooth).
