How to resize photos

Resizing Photo’s

The EAF have changed the size of images for submission to 1400 pixels wide by 1050 pixels tall. The club have adopted this size for all our digitally projected competitions.

Un-cropped landscape images are the easiest to resize using Photoshop’s Image Size command. Make sure that you switch on Constrain Proportions and Resample Image and then enter the new width of 1400 pixels and the height should change to a value less than 1050 pixels, this will depend on the aspect ratio of your camera’s sensor.

Portrait images are a little more complex, you still have to fit your image within the EAF size which means that the height of your image must not exceed 1050 pixels.

Using Photoshop’s Image Size command and making sure that you have Constrain Proportions and Resample Image turned on, enter the height of 1050 pixels and the width will adjust itself to a value less than 1400 pixels.

Other non-standard sizes are just as easy to deal with, they must still fit within the EAF size, the following is a panoramic image and as you can see it is wider than it is tall so all you need to do is resize it so that the width equals 1400 pixels and the height will adjust itself to a value less than 1050 pixels.

Square images should have their height adjusted so that they equal 1050 pixels, the width will adjust itself to a value less than 1400 pixels.

To sum up, regardless whether your image is landscape or portrait you need to make sure that the longest side does not exceed 1400 pixels if it is a landscape image or 1050 pixels if it is a portrait image.
