Uploading master images

Before uploading images to Dynamic Media Classic, make sure they are the highest quality size and format. Dynamic Media Classic recommends uploading high-quality images with a sufficient pixel count (from 1500 to 2000 pixels in the long dimension). This allows for any dynamic imaging that is required.

For details on uploading images, see Uploading files.

Preparing your master images for upload

Prepare your master image files before you upload them to Dynamic Media Classic:

  • Image size
    Create the largest size images you anticipate using. Typical image sizes range from 1500 to 2500 pixels in the longest dimension. If you intend to use the Zoom feature, Dynamic Media Classic recommends using images that are at least 2000 pixels in the longest dimension for optimal zoom detail. Dynamic Media Classic can render images up to 25 megapixels each. For example, you could use a 5000 x 5000 megapixel image or any other size combination up to 25 megapixels.

  • File formats
    Dynamic Media Classic supports all standard image file formats, including TIFF, BMP, JPEG, PSD, GIF, and EPS. Lossless image formats—TIFF and PNG—are recommended. If you are using a JPEG image, use the highest quality settings.

  • Color space
    RGB is the color space for web image presentations; CMYK images commonly used for printing are automatically converted to RGB when you upload them. Uploading CMYK images that have an embedded ICC color profile for the conversion to RGB is recommended. See also ICC profiles.
