Resizing and renaming images for digital projection (PDI)

From Jaunuary 2018 all digital images to  be 1600x1200

In your favourite photo editor software go to resize and enter 1600 pixels for the width

If the height is 1200 pixels or less then save the image

If the height is more than 1200 pixels then enter 1200 pixels in the height box and save the image

Images to be saved as jpegs with srgb colour space

If you are finding this a challenge go to     PIXLR   click on open image from computer go to resize and enter the width as 1600
If height is 1200 or less then save if not then enter 1200 in height ( ensure slider is at 100%)  save image
rename at this point so you don't overwrite the original

please note the word by is in lower case, Titles and your Name to start with a capital

find your image using windows explorer
