This pic stuff is so confusing. I never sent in my 2x2. So, now I guess I have to do the 3x5. But is it supposed to be a 3x5 headshot?? Or, just a regular 3x5 where im part of the pic? How would they get the dimensions to work? Also, how do I check the pixels and dpi?
I wouldnt care if everyone didnt keep reminding me that the pic would be used for EVERYTHING for 3 YEARS.
UGH!!! For me this pic has been the frustrating thing about dealing with CLS.
yup yup. Now if you cant help me with it, begone.
What is pixel width exactly? Im looking at a standard photo and it says it 980 pixel width. I dont get this AT ALL.
It's the number of dots that make up that edge of the picture. What I would do if I were you:
Go to http://www.peterw.000webhost.com/resizor/
and download the Resizor tool. It's a smart (content aware) tool to add pixels to an image. (And only like 4 MB)
Tell it to leave the aspect ratio the same so you don't distort the picture (don't unlink the little chain button) but to make the width a lot more pixels (like 3,000+ since they said it needs to be at least 2,000 and you may not be able to crop it).
Save that (it will be as a bitmap), open it in either Windows Picture Viewer or Google Picasa and save a copy as a JPEG
Send it to them like that and say you don't have a tool that can crop to 3 x 5, so can they please help.
Granted I'm not sure they've accepted my third submission yet, but that will at least give you a picture with as many pixels as they want.
