When uploading images to the Asset Manager, keep in mind that the images are large enough. For example, if the original image is 300 pixels wide, but it should fit into a 600 pixels wide container on a large desktop screen, the image may end up looking blurry, pixelated or distorted.
However, make sure that your images are not too large, as these will take longer to load. Images larger than 2500 pixels are very rarely needed.
To ensure a good balance between image quality and image size, you can use the option 'Save for Web' in Photoshop or any other image editor. In other versions this option may also be called 'Save for Web and Devices'. This will make sure that the file size doesn't get too big in terms of MB's.
After uploading your image to the Asset Manager, Presspage will automatically create differently sized versions of this image:
- 500 px wide
- 800 px wide
- 1920 px wide
Using smaller versions of the main image where appropriate (thumbnails, for example) will keep loading times acceptable.
Finally, make sure that your image is using the correct color profile: you should use sRGB rather than Adobe RGB or ProPhoto RGB. The latter two may result in washed out or slightly desaturated colours when viewed in a web browser.
