Images: what size, what format?

Size and format are the dress code your images must follow when they go up on Squiz. Like a guy in shorts and thongs at a non-beach wedding, getting these things wrong is likely to disrupt the experience people have when they view your page.

Images can be uploaded to Squiz in png, jpg/jpeg and gif formats, and should be smaller than 100Kb in file size (with exceptions only for very large images like banners). When you upload bigger files, you risk your audience tuning out as they wait for your content to load.

Giving your image the right dimensions is also important. What the correct dimensions are will depend on what you’re using the image for, and you can refer to this guide to check. For the most part, Macquarie’s web pages are designed to have landscape images that are either full page width or 1/3 page width.

If your image is too small it will either stretch to fit the space, or look ill-fitted and strange in a space too large for it.
