SOME BASIC INFORMATION


Embedded Images...

are images displayed in the body of a forum post and are visible to anyone reading that post.


Size: Images Displayed in a Post

Should be no larger than

670 pixels wide

210,000 pixels squared (width x height). For example, An image 670 pixels wide can be no higher than 313 pixels tall.

45 KB for each image and 225 KB total for all images within one post

Doing the Math:

To find the square pixels of your image, multiple the pixel height by the pixel width.

If you have a width you want and you need to find the maximum height, divide the number 210,000 by the number of pixels wide you want. The answer is the maximum height.

This works in reverse: if you know how tall you want the image, divide that number into 210,000 and you get the maximum width.

Google functions as a calculator. In the search field, enter your calculations. If you want to know the square pixels of an image that is 300 x 500 then type in:

300*500

and hit 'enter' or 'search'.

To multiply, use the asterisk: *

To divide, use the forward slash: /

To add, use the plus sign: +

To subtract, use the minus or dash sign: -
