(Revised 8/2020)

Preparing a Digital Image

  1. Digital images need to be resized to a maximum width of 1920 pixels and maximum height of 1080 pixels.  It is recommended that you save a full resolution copy of your image prior to resizing.
  2. Take the following steps in Photoshop -
    a.  Click Image>Image Size
    b.  In the pop-up dialog box make sure "Constrain Proportions" is checked
    c.  Enter 300 in the Resolution field
  3. For a horizontal image (landscape orientation)
    a.  Change the width field to 1920 pixels
    b.  If the height field is less than 1080 pixels, you are done
    c.  If the height field is more than 1080, change the height field to 1080 and the width field will automatically adjust
  4. For a vertical image (portrait orientation)
    a.  Change the height field only to 1080 pixels, the width field will automatically adjust
  5. Click OK
  6. Use Save As to save the resized image so that you do not overwrite the original file
