the complete tool for curating, managing and marketing art exhibitions online
what are the optimum sizes for my images ?
To get the best navigation speeds for a wide range of computers, we have optimized our system to take care of both the resolution and image compression during upload.
Please make sure images are no bigger than 8MB.
To make uploading faster, you can use programs like iPhoto or Photoshop to reduce your file sizes to approximately 5MB by resizing the image to 2500 pixels in it's largest dimension. Remember, larger files will take longer to upload. Please save your image at 100% quality.
Acceptable files types are .jpg .gif .png .tiff
If you are not familiar with these programs then please contact us so we can assist or advise you.
DO NOT compress your image in Photoshop or iPhoto or any other app. before uploading to exhibbit.
