    Ticket by SparrowsHeart | July 10, 2013 | Question
    • I don't know what size I want my images to be, I'm trying to find out what a good size is for a back ground image but I can't find any of that information.

      You can upload any size image. However, the original size of your image will affect how the image is displayed if you use the  Normal or  Tile image scaling options (see the table in the section below). In addition,  for optimized image quality,  if you use the  Full Screen  image scaling option, we recommend that your uploaded picture is as large as it can be.

      Thanks but you really didn't answer my question.... I know I can upload all sizes, I know that size will affect how it's displayed (this is why I'm asking the question) based on the fact that I DON'T know what size it should be,  I am at a loss as to WHAT size I should create it to be.  I just need to have an idea of WHAT size is recommended for a background (not tiled) for best resolution.... especially since client's monitors will be in a wide range of sizes... I want to have it as large as possible but don't want to bog the system down either.  I also don't know what ratio to have it in.... golden ratio?  etc.... 

      Thanks a ton, Jen

      The size of the images and the ratio really depends on size that you plan for the images to be displayed. In addition note that larger images can take longer to load and make your site slower. Therefore it really depends on your size display needs and the amount of images you are looking to upload.

      If you need any further assistance, please let us know.

      Oh boy.  Ok, let me try wording it this way.... WHAT is a good average size to choose SINCE all displays are different???  Should I Google the largest display dimensions out there and just choose that???  I don't feel like anyone is understanding me.

      Thanks a ton, Jen

      It is best to upload your photos in a 4:3 ratio.
