Some of students photos will come from cameras, the images may need to be resized and the picture quality reduced to enable the graphics to be quickly seen by viewers of the portfolio.
This will require a photo editing program which will enable you to reduce the picture quality. You should aim to get a file size of less than 100 kb – most digital cameras produce image sizes of over 1000kb or 1 megabyte and save in JPG format.
The photo editing program may have a save as web image or picture quality option which will create smaller files. Some photo editing programs allow you to convert several images at once to a specified size.
Some free photo editing software includes irfranview (www.ifranview.com), GIMP (www.gimp.org)
There are a large number of formats for graphics – common formats include JPG, PNG,GIF,BMP which are supported by mahara – you will need to convert these to a format that is supported by mahara.
