Guidelines for creating a .jpg of your art work for your web page

  1. Take a photo of your painting before you frame/glaze it.
  2. Use photo software to crop your photo (if necessary) and resize it.  You are aiming for a fairly low resolution .jpg image, with a size of around 100KB, and an absolute maximum of 120KB.
  3. Rename the .jpg so that the filename is the title of your painting.  Please use the following convention:
    • Capitalise the first letter of every word in the title – this includes words such as TheAIn etc
    • Delete all spaces from the title
    • Delete any special characters eg ‘ or –

Example filenames:  HarbourView.jpg, ASunnyDayInEpsom.jpg

  1. Save the file.
  2. Attach the .jpg to an email and send it to the website editor.  If you have several images, zip them up into a folder and then attach the compressed folder to the email rather than the individual images.

To change the file name, select the .jpg, right click then select Rename from the drop-down menu, and then type your new file name.

To zip files up into a compressed folder, select the relevant files, right click then select “Send to” /  “Compressed (zipped) folder”.

There are numerous software packages available to enable you to crop/resize your pictures.  For example, you can download PhotoRazor (Windows) for free:

Please contact the website editor for any help or advice.
