Photo Gallery Help

Preparing Your Photo for Upload

The Photo Gallery accepts several types of image files.  The preferred file type is JPEG (.jpg or .jpeg).  There are some restrictions you will have to consider before attempting to upload your photo.  They are:

 

  1. The image size MUST BE 640x480 pixels (or less).  A 640x480 pixels ("landscape" view) is preferred.  Your image may not exceed 640 pixels in width or 480 pixels in height.  Thus, a 360x480 "portrait" view is acceptable.
  2. The image file size must be 1000 Kb or less.
  3. The preferred image format is .jpg.  The following file types are allowed, but must meet the image and/or file size restrictions.

Preparing A Thumbnail

Though it is not necessary to supply the thumbnail view, it is preferred.  There are some restrictions you will have to consider in creating a thumbnail:

 

  1. The thumbnail image size must be 133x100 pixels for landscape views.  The width my be less, but the height must be 100 pixels.  Thus, a 75x100 "portrait" thumbnail is acceptable.
  2. The thumbnail image size must be 10 Kb or less.
  3. The preferred file types are .jpg or .gif.
  4. If you do not supply a thumbnail view, one will be automatically created.  Automatically created thumbnails are normally quite degraded and are smaller than the desired 133x100 pixels.
