Resizing your photos to upload on your Spring IDX website

There are various places on your website where you will want to upload a photo, for instance, your company logo, your About image, or your Hero image. 

It is very important that you upload an image of a sufficient size and resolution to display clearly on your site, otherwise your image could appear blurry or pixelated.

If you need to resize your image and do not have software on your computer to help you resize your image file appropriately, there are a number of free, online programs that can help you do that.  

One particularly user-friendly system is https://picresize.com. The below instructions refer to resizing your image file on this website. However, you are welcome to use any other program or site to achieve the same result. FBS is not associated with picresize.com in any way and does not guarantee its results.
