I have tried to keep up with this blog, but the last few weeks have been packed with jobs. I am not complaining at all, it’s been great!
Periodically, I call Metrolist to find out if I am sizing the photos properly – It had been 448 pixels x 290 pixels. This time I was told 640 pixels x 480 pixels – which I was pretty sure was not the same proportions as what I had been using. So, I did a test. I uploaded a photo that was 64ox480 and then proceeded to look at it on the mls. It was distorted – the photo had been stretched to the elogated rectangle on the site.
I went back to the drawing board…and thought if the old proportions still worked, but we could upload a larger photo – I would try that. In order to figure the proportions using 640 as my width. I went to google and found http://www.scriptygoddess.com/resources/proportioncalc.htm – I could type in the old proportions and one new proportion and it would give me the other side. Turns out it is 640×415 pixels.
I tried the new size and presto, it worked.
My goal is to make sure we see the best photos out there for real estate. If Realtors® and their assistants don’t know the correct proportions, their photos are never going to look right to the public. So, what do we do?
