How to resize an image to fit the required MB and/or dimensions

If you have a PC:

  • Double-click on your image. Click the three dots in the top right corner.
  • Then click Resize and choose a size. MP is not the same as MB so after saving your image, check the size by hovering over your image with your mouse. If it’s still too large, do the process again and choose a smaller size.

This method doesn’t give you the option to change pixel dimensions. Use the instructions for “any computer” (see below) in case you want to do this.


If you have a Mac

  • Select “Adjust Size” under Tools to change the dimensions and resolution. Avoid warping and retain your image’s original proportions by checking “Scale proportionally” and “Resample image.”

On any computer

  • Open your image from your computer by clicking “open” on the top.

  • Select “Edit” from the left, then click the triangle next to “Essentials” and “Resize”.

  • Change the pixel dimensions for width or height and keep the Lock Aspect Ratio on. Depending on the current size of your image and submission requirements, you will have to make a smaller or larger reduction in pixels. Then click apply.

  • Go to “Save” and choose “Computer”.

  • Choose a file name different than the original file name. Make sure “Format” is set on JPG and that “Quality” is on 100. Here you can check how large your file will be. In this example it’s 1.8 MB. Click save. Your image is ready to submit!
