Website Editing: Correct photo/image sizes/dimensions
SwimOffice Admin - Webmaster
It's important to properly size your images and photos before loading them onto your SwimOffice website. For example, the correct size for photos on the home page slide show (normal size) is 480 pixels wide by 285 pixels high.
If you load images that are not sized correctly, they can look squashed or stretched, only partially displayed with part of the image cut off, or can take a long time to load when giant sized due to being taken straight from a camera. To prevent this, use an image editor to resize and crop your team's images to create stunning online graphics. Pixlr or PicMonkey work great if you do not have a photo or graphics editing program.
Below are the proper sizes for the various images on your site. All numbers are in pixels.
