Uploading Images To Your Equestrian Website

Ryan

Pictures are a great way of keeping your website visitors interested and breaking up your text content to make it more readable. However, an image straight off a modern digital camera may be too large for your website control panel to handle. Large images can take a long time to download too, so they may need resizing before being uploaded to your website. If this is the case, you will need to resize the image to the largest size required and then upload.

It is highly likely that you will want to crop images as well as resizing them for use on your website. When doing this, make sure you keep the aspect ratio the same between the height and width or the images will look very strange!

If you are unsure of what size images to upload, please ask! If we get it right at the beginning it makes life a lot easier than having to resize and re-upload a large amount of images. Proper sized images will make your equestrian website load faster and your visitors happier.

Links to tools

If you don’t want to buy image editing software such as Photoshop Elements there are also some online tools for editing images such as:

There is also a good free image editor that you can download and install on your computer called Paint.NET
