Uploading to

Here you go People! Instructions for resizing your images for upload to

I copied this from the 1X site:

Please think of the following before uploading a file:

    1. File must be stored in JPEG format
    2. File should not exceed 2MB, but have as high quality as possible. Use the “Save for web”-feature in Photoshop and adjust compression so it never exceeds 2MB but is as high as possible.
    3. We recommend 900-950 pixels for landscape format and 700-750 pixels height for portrait format.
    4. Avoid special characters in the filename. Stick to a-z, A-Z, 0-9. No blanks!
    5. Don’t upload the same photo more than once!
    6. Don’t upload photos with added borders or text
    7. All photo-parts of a photo montage must be taken by you. No stock photos allowed

Keep these things in mind before Uploading.

How do you resize?

Open the image in Photoshop.

Select: Image > Resize > Image Size from the menu Bar. (Alt + Ctrl + I)

Make sure that: Constrain Proportions and Resample Image are selected.

If the image is landscape format (horizontal) type: 950 in the Width box

Save as a new file (follow the instructions from 1X).


If the image is portrait format (vertical) type: 750 in the Height box

Save as a new file (follow the instructions from 1X).

Doing this should make your image less than 2mb in size.

Be sure to save the resized image under a new file name (something like original filenameresizedfor1x) make sure the file type is set to jpg. Use maximum file quality (12) for the compression setting.

This should work 😉

Marks posted tomorrow.

  3. Depth of field is good. I think I want to get away from skills and be more themed. Get the creativity, “story telling” happening.
    Cows are ALWAYS the best choice. (Hmmmmm, steak! ;0 )
