RESIZE PHOTOS

Most digital cameras today give photo in high resolution for printing.  However, online photos should not be larger than 1024×768.  Most MLS does not allow larger size photos and will only cause emailing problems. It’s best to reduce the size to a maximum of 1024×768 before sending to us.  It is best NOT take any portrait (vertical) photos, as they do not display well on some sites. Read our Photo Guide to avoid the most common photo mistakes (lighting, selection, orientation, cropping, sizing).

It should tell you how many pixels wide and high the photo is.
