WHAT ARE YOUR IMAGE SIZE REQUIREMENTS FOR PROFILE PICTURE OR ARTWORK UPLOADS?
Profile pictures are never displayed larger than 100 x 100 pixels so it’s best to send an image that is not too much larger than that.
This is important: artwork images should be at least larger than 300 x 300 pixels. Artwork images are never displayed larger than 900 pixels wide. While our system will automatically resize images larger than this, it does help if you can reduce the file size ahead of time to ensure proper upload and also viewing by the public.
Your images MUST be smaller than 1MB in order to upload, however, in reality they should be much smaller than this for web viewing. If you follow the below specs, your images will have the optimal file size to quality ratio for the web.
IDEAL IMAGE SPECS
File Type: .jpg
Resolution: 72 ppi
Min Pixel Dimensions: 300 x 300
Max Pixel Dimensions: 900 x 900
