While our gallery plugin has the functionality built in to resize your images, you may find that depending on the size of your images, this takes a lot of time (and can cost you additional in hosting fees due to storage and CPU usage).

Our recommendation is to first resize your images to a reasonable size for website use before uploading each set.  Optimal size for our galleries require photos no larger than 1000 x 1000px.  The width and height will vary depending on whether your photos are taken in portrait or landscape.

There are a few very easy and inexpensive ways to do this:

Here’s a video on how to prepare your photos for upload:

Here are the steps to Prepare Your Images for Upload:

  1. Make sure the photos are the same aspect ratio.
  2. Make sure to censor the faces of any patient in the photos for HIPAA (do this using a free tool like Microsoft Paint).
  3. Resize the photos so both the before and after photos are the same size.  Also recommend reducing the size to 600 x 800 px (Portrait) or 800 x 600 px (Landscape) or 800 x 800px (Square).  If you need to go smaller because they photos aren’t large enough, this is OK, but will not always create the best result.  You can also reduce quality to 72 DPI (dots per inch) since this is for your website.  This was done with Light Image Reszier in the video.
