Digital Images

How can I tell how big my current image is?

You can get details of how big your image is in px by checking the properties of the file. Locate the file on your hard drive or media card, click the right mouse button, scroll down to 'Properties' and click your left mouse button, assuming you are using XP/Visa click the 'Summary' tab and this will display the properties of your image. Use the table below to work out whether the picture can be used big enough for the magazine.
