Tutorial - Image sizes


Introduction

Depending on the number of images and width of container, all images in one row, whether landscape or portrait format, should import in same heigth because all images will be scaled to the same height. In this example we use 750px.

Usually we use JPG's because the file size is small and at the same time the quality high. In some cases and if necessary also a transparent PNG can be used.

To demonstrate that the images are scaled correctly, we combine images with a white circle in different columns with different widths on 25%, 33%, 50%, 75% and 100% container.

When using only one image in a row feel free of the image size, but use the minimum width (in %) of the corresponding container.
