Getting The Best Results For your Photos

Placing an Ad on Gundogs.com is a simple and straight forward process however there are some things you must do with respect to your photos to get the best overall look to your ad. The most important photo you submit is the photo that will appear in the initial listing area. It will be the first photo you Upload when placing an ad. For optimal viewing this first photo should have an aspect ratio of 480×640, this means the size of your photo should be 480 pixels wide by 640 pixels in height often considered “Portrait” as opposed to “Landscape”.
All other photos uploaded to Gundogs.com should either be 640 x 480 or 480 x 640 pixels  in size for optimal viewing and performance. They will be displayed perfectly in the application regardless of aspect ratio. Just remember the photo that will be used in the Ad Listing should have an aspect ratio of 480 x 640 and it will be the first file uploaded.

There is a maximum size limit per photo of 250 KB far greater than necessary for a high quality JPEG or PNG file in 640×480 pixels. Remember the larger the files you upload the longer it takes to download them for viewing. Here are two high quality photos that are each less than 150 KB: 640 x 480 example 480 x 640 example that you can download to use as examples or templates for your photos.
