Hi, I didn't know where to ask this, so I hope someone sees this who can answer this question :-)

I want to submit my layout to a publisher. They are asking that the photo be 1500 x 1500 pixels. I use a Cannon Rebel, and a Mac. The iPhoto says my photo is: 2441 x 2442, 2.7 MB, JPEG.

I'm assuming that the 2441 x 2442 is the pixels? If so, then my photo would be of high enough quality?

Sooooo confused and would like to finally submit something. Any help or advice would be greatly appreciated!

Stephanie

How exciting!

Yes it is the pixels so you would have to resize it down to 1500 x 1500.

Good luck!

Hi! Thanks so much for the response!

Okay -- embarrassing -- how do I do that? By cropping the photo? I'm not sure how to lower the pixel count. Thanks in advance! I so appreciate it! Stephanie

Most image editing software will have a resize tool. It's not the same as cropping. The software you use will make a difference here in your final image quality since the software is going to decide which pixels to keep and which to delete. You want to stay away from online resizing for this if it's for publication.

Thanks so much. Unfortunately iPhoto doesn't have a resize option so I'll need to find another place to alter it. Thanks again, Stephanie
