Images - Ratios, Cropping, Saving web ready

HOW TO CROP YOUR IMAGES

Many times, we will refer to image sizes as ratios (ie 16:9). If the ratio is 16x9, it means that the width of the image is 16 and the height is 9. This means that the image can be 1600x900, 800x450, or 400x225 and still be in the ratio of 16x9. The question is, how do I make my images 1600x900 and not distort them. Below is a video that discusses this and shows you how to crop an image in Photoshop. 

 

 

HOW TO SAVE IMAGES WEBREADY

Saving your images for the web is important. It allows you to reduce the file size of your images to make your website faster. Images for the web should be around 300k or less. The video below shows you how to accomplish this in order to have an efficient web product.

    but what if you dont want to crop images

    would you save as 1600 x 1088 or 1200 x1765 ?

    would love to have a suggested workflow without cropping images

    thanks

    Robert,

    The reason we normally pick 1600x900, is because it fits in browsers really nicely. However, you can play around with the aspect ratios in the backend of most of our website templates and set it to a size that works for you. If you set your images to a different size, I would either try to make them all the same size or turn letter boxing on so that they all fit.
