Unnecessarily large image file sizes cause slow page load speeds which in turn hurts your Bodyworker profile's ranking in Google search results.
Used your phone to take a picture?
Smartphones these days are capable of taking very high resolution photos. The downside to this is the resulting LARGE file size.
Before uploading a photo to your KaHuna Australia profile, it is highly recommended that you resize it down to the dimensions of 1200 x 720 pixels and save as a JPG/JPEG.
Follow these instructions to do just that.
- 1Click here: https://www.befunky.com/create/resize-image/
- 2Click Open in the top menu and then browse to select and open your image file.
- 3A prompt will appear. Click Yes to continue opening the file.
Scenario 1 - The Width to Height Ratio is correct (10:6) but the overall dimensions need to be reduced
- 4Click Resize in the left menu and the Resize submenu will be displayed.
- 5Because the Lock Aspect Ratio option is ticked, simply change the width to 1200px and the height will be updated automatically. Click Apply.
- 6Click Save in the top menu and then browse to select where to save the image.
- 7Now you can upload the image to your KaHuna Australia profile.
Scenario 2 - The image dimensions ratio is incorrect
- 4Click Crop in the left menu and the Crop submenu will be displayed.
- 5Change the Width and Height to the desired dimensions (ideally 1200 x 720 pixels) and press Enter. Alternatively, you can manually click and drag the white crop handles on the image itself to resize them. You can also click inside the crop area and drag it.
- 6Click Apply to finish cropping the image.
- 7Click Save in the top menu and then browse to select where to save the image.
- 8Now you can upload the image to your KaHuna Australia profile.
You may need to use a combination of both of these scenarios to first edit the dimensions to the ratio of 10:6 (using Scenario 2), and then reduce the file size so the width is 1200px or the height is 720px which ever is the greater (using scenario 1).
