    In Website + Marketing Website how do you resize images

    Has anyone figured out how to resize the pictures so that they aren't so huge and take up so much space on a page? They are completely out of proportion and look weird against the rest of the page. I've tried resizing the original images but the site editor automatically changes the size to look even worse. 

    Any suggestions - other that just giving up on these crappy templates?

    Hi @Rachella,

     

    Welcome to the Community!

    Were you able to solve the issue with your images? There are some general guidelines related to the template you choose - such as making sure to use a photo that matches the orientation of the area you've chosen to use. For example, a vertical area filled with a vertical picture. You'll also want to be sure that your images are uploaded at a size most efficient to online viewing. 

     

    Keep in mind that the pictures are display at 72 dpi. So a small 4" picture should not be too much larger - and never smaller - than 300 pixels wide for that space. Too small and "fit to space" can distort the image. Too large and the browser of your visitor has to work overtime (slow loading times) to resize for the website. You may wish to examine some photos in the provided gallery for examples. 

     

    To allow for expansion, most of the gallery photos (while they range in size) are around 640 x 480 pixels. You may wish to experiment with 3 sizes of the same picture to see which works best for you.

    No, I just tried a different template. Your templates are inflexible and your online "advisors" lack the knowledge needed to answer technical questions about the templates.
