Upload size

Post by ArturLP »

Hello. I'm new to fanart.tv and i don't know if here is the right place to put my question.

I have an image for an album cover that i want to add, but i cant upload images bigger than 1mb.
I don't know how to change the size of the image without quality loss. What should I do?

My image is 1.14mb.

Hey bud, have you tried moving the slider to the left until it's less than 1mb, when saving?

first: what type is this image ? when its 1000x1000 i dont think its a JPG ( maybe a PNG )
second: load it in ur grafik programm ( photoshop,gimp, etc... )
third: save it as a JPG ! and adjust the compression until u are under 1mb ( result should be ok after compression, cause all images in our Database are under 1mb and they are mostly brilliand ;) )
fourth: be happy and have a beer and a cookie :)

ppi only matters when you print. http://bjango.com/articles/ppiisatag/

The only way to decrease the file size would be to decrease compression quality.

Personally I'd jump straight to step four, but that's just me ;)
