    there is no way that an image size can harm your blogger ,but it can slow it .but its necessary to tag your images ,i mean you should put some keyword in it, and blogger has this feature it called properties just click on the image and it show up ,the reason you should do that is the for search engine optimization , because if you published an image without putting some keywords in it,when google spiders crawls you website they will not recognize what this image is about so you will lost a lot of traffic that search through google image .

    I've never heard of a situation where someone's images actually hurt their site SEO or search engine ranking.

    Specifically, what size of images are you currently using on your blog? For instance, do the images stretch the confines of your blog template or do the images sit very neatly within your article?

    If you use images you need to make sure they load quickly. Google will not like a site that loads slow.

    Image size can increase the Google bot crawl rate of your website which is good for listing your images on Google Images result which will increase the traffic and somehow it will benefit the ranking. Just don't forget to put Img "alt tag".

    And if you are so conscious of using images which don't have any license associated with it, then go to "search tools" below google search bar > Usage rights > "select labelled for reuse"
