Best Practices: Uploading Images

Best Practices Uploading Images Best Practices Uploading Images - a blog posting from Whindo - Ticket Whindo To Your Event

Whindo provides several methods of customizing your event website. For example you can upload a logo, banner, sponsors, and several others images. In this article we will cover the best practices in uploading images to render the highest quality of your images. Although Whindo supports several image formats including .jpg, .png or .gif, we recommend using .png whenever possible.

The type of an image can have a drastic impact on page load speed and image quality. Use these guidelines:

  • PNGs are almost always superior to GIFs and are usually the best choice. IE 4.0b1+, Mac IE 5.0+, Opera 3.51+ and Netscape 4.04+ as well as all versions of Safari and Firefox fully support PNG, including transparency. IE versions 4 to 6 don't support alpha channel transparency (partial transparency) but they support 256-color-or-less PNGs with 1-bit transparency (the same that is supported for GIFs). IE 7 and 8 support alpha transparent PNGs except when an alpha opacity filter is applied to the element.
  • Use GIFs for very small or simple graphics (e.g. less than 10x10 pixels, or a color palette of less than 3 colors) and for images which contain animation. If you think an image might compress better as a GIF, try it as a PNG and a GIF and pick the smaller.
  • Use JPGs for all photographic-style images.

Although Whindo will automatically resize images maintaining the appropriate aspect ratio it is recommended to upload images in the standard image sizes listed below.

Standard Image Sizes

  • Logo – 211 x 150 pixels
  • Banner – 980 x 300 pixels
  • iPhone Splash Screen – 320 x 460 pixels
  • iPhone Thumbnail – 57 x 57 pixels
  • Ticket Coupon – 480 x 200 pixels
  • Speaker Photo – 200 x 200 pixels
  • Photo Gallery – 520 x 390 pixels
