I put the image on my website with overlay option in Google Maps API. But the map image which is overlayed is too big: 2.85 MB. I can't resize it, so I wonder is there an option to put it somewhere on my server, not some tinypic or similar servers because they resize it? I need direct link to the image. Coding is:

var oldmap = new google.maps.GroundOverlay(

I put tinypic link just for example.

Thank you.
