How do I resize images for the website?

These instructions are for most Windows operating systems.

Most cameras, including the newest cell phone cameras, produce images that are too large for the software to store and may be rejected during the product listing process. But it’s fairly easy to resize images from your computer desktop before uploading.

Right click on the image you wish to resize and go to “Open with” and then “Photos”. This is a default software that is available on most Windows operating systems.

  1. Right click on the image and select “Resize” from the menu that pops up.

  2. Select the “best for profile pictures and thumbnails” (top choice), just make sure the file size (circled) is less than 1024KB (it should be).

  3. It is recommended that you rename the file when you save it so you can tell which one is the correct size (such as “product name_web version” or similar. Make sure the file is saved as either .png or .jpg; the system does not accept other formats.
