Help With Photos

What Size Photos to Use - Photos should not be larger than 400 x 400 pixels. If they are, the site will automatcially shrink your photos to be no larger than 400 x 400 pixels. When the site shrinks your photos to fit, it will maintain the aspect ratio of the original photo.

How to Add Photos Faster - Photo files (JPEG files) from digital cameras and scanners can be small sized files (50,000 bytes or less) or very large files (500,000 bytes or more) depending on the settings of your digital camera or scanner. If your photo files are larger than 50,000 bytes, we recommend that you shrink these files on your PC BEFORE you use the site to upload them. If you do this, it will take a lot less time for the site to copy files from your computer to attach them to your ad. If you have a slow Internet connection and try to use a 500,000 byte photo file, it may take 5 minutes for that one photo to be added to the site.

Software to Use for Photos - If you want to shrink your photo files or edit your photos, you will need to use a program on your computer to do this. Programs that can be used to do this include: Microsoft Photo Editor, Adobe Photoshop, Paint Shop Pro, Corel Draw and similar products.
