Image Resolution

Photosymbols are available to download in 3 different sizes - Small, Medium and High resolution.

You can set your preferred resolution on the account page when you first log in, or by clicking on the grey person icon in the top right corner. Choose a resolution from the pull-down menu and click ‘Save’ to store your settings. You can change this at any time.

So which resolution should you choose? Well that depends on how you want to use photosymbols.

Small - around 50KB

Small images are 160 x 160 pixels. They are designed for websites and documents where you need fast loading pictures and small file sizes. If you try and use them too big however you will get fuzzy images.

Medium - around 300KB

Medium images are 480 x 480 pixels. These are designed for general use for printed information and when you want to use a slightly larger image on a website. They scale up better than the small images too.

Hi-res - around 5MB

High resolution images are 2048 x 2048 pixels and have the most detail. They are designed for posters and banners and anything that is printed professionally. The downside is image files can be quite big which can make your documents bulky and hard to email or download from a website.
