Are there any file size restrictions when adding a photo?
Yes, the maximum image dimensions are 620 X 620 pixels. Maximum file size is 105K.
Only .gif, .jpg, .jpeg file types may be uploaded. Bitmaps (.bmp) files CANNOT be uploaded as web browsers cannot display this file type.
How can I find out my photo size and file size?
Right-click the photo file > Select "Properties". You should get a box similar to the one below. The screenshot below was taken from a Windows XP PC; images on Windows 2000 or 98 may be slightly different.
After clicking the Advanced button,. the properties box shows information related to the photo, including the width and height which you can check. Depending on your operating system, the details that are shown may be different to the screenshot below.
If your photo is outside our guidelines of 620 x 620 (105K), then you
will need to resize and compress the photo using photo editing software.
