When you import a photo from your phone or a camera to your computer, it usually arrives as a fairly large file. This large size is great for printing on a sheet of paper, but is too large to load properly on a web page. Changing the size is a pretty easy process:
As you can see, this photo taken from my iPhone is 21.8 M in size, which would print at 45″ x 32″ if needed! Since this is a little larger than the average computer screen, we need to reduce the size. To keep the width and height ratio consistent check that the little chain link looks like this:
Change the width to 900 Pixels. (The height will automatically change to keep the ratio correct.) This photo is n ow approximately 12″ x 8″ but only has a resolution of 72 dots per inch, so wouldn’t print clearly at this size, but will look great on a web page – and more importantly, will load rather faster than the original size.
