Resizing and Sending Images to ACE
ACE is run by volunteers, we are short-staffed and time is always at a premium, so please help us, help you. When sending images to ACE for posting at the website, the following points are very IMPORTANT and need to be followed :
1) Please name and number your images which should be sent as attachments: OpenHouse1, Exhibition3, or whatever
so that we know in what order to place the pictures.
2) Send a short text to go with each image
i.e OpenHouse1 - shows Principal Dr XX opening Exhibit in Lexington, KY in
3)Image resizing - please do NOT send images of over 1 megabyte. Please click, read and use the method below to resize and send images which we can use....- it is free, easy and it works...........
IMPORTANT - Click HERE for instructions on how to re-size pictures using Paint.net
This free graphics Utility "Paint.net" is not only free but very user-friendly, and an asset to image users.
The correct target size of images needed are:
Webpages on the site (part of text) = 500 pixels
ACE Image Gallery = No Limit if you are uploading them to the Image Gallery yourself, but 1200pixels if you are mailing them to us.
Thumbnail images = 150 pixels
4) Images which show students face on or recognizably should not be sent until permission has been received to post the picture at our website. Some schools have a "blanket" permission each year but if your school does not, then please use the Parental Release document - "Click here" - to download it.
