Scotland's Coastal Heritage at Risk

Re-size an image

Why do I need to re-size my images?

Your photos submitted with each ShoreUPDATE form cannot collectively exceed 10MB. If you exceed this, your record may be lost. To make sure you don’t exceed the 10MB limit, we advise you to resize your photos so that they don’t exceed around 2MB each.

A good rule of thumb we use to make sure photos are a reasonable size is to set the longest edge to 2000 pixels.

You can use any picture editing software you're comfortable with. If you don't have a preferred programme, we suggest either using Paint, which comes free with Windows computers.

If you don’t get along with resizing, upload a maximum of 2 photographs with your ShoreUPDATE forms, email us the rest and we will add them to the record for you.
