Resolution and Resizing

Getting your photograph ready to enter a competition like the Fremantle International Portrait Prize can be a problem for those not practising this regularly.

Competition organisers need to specify certain parameters to ensure that images are neither too big or too small.

George Garbeck's website is particularly useful in guiding you simply, step by step, through the Resolution and Resizing maze.


The photograph at the right was resized according to FIPP guidelines.

The longest side measures 2048 pixels. The resolution is 72dpi.

The file size is 1.7Mb. The image was saved in Photoshop at Quality 11 to achieve the size.

Your best portrait could win you AU$5000 cash or a state-of-the-art Nikon D800 camera. Entries close 8 July.
