Make sure your pho­tos look their best on any de­vice

While there are more ways to get our im­ages seen by a wide au­di­ence to­day, this ease of ac­cess to dis­play re­sources has re­sulted in great com­pe­ti­tion. Most pho­tog­ra­phers put their im­ages on­line, so the con­sump­tion of con­tent is enor­mous. A qual­ity user ex­pe­ri­ence is vi­tal for leav­ing a last­ing im­pres­sion on a viewer, en­cour­ag­ing them to look for your work, rather than mov­ing on to the next pho­tog­ra­pher. A huge pro­por­tion of web con­tent is viewed on mo­bile de­vices, which can be prob­lem­atic for web­site de­sign. Be­fore we even con­sider that as­pect how­ever, we have to recog­nise and ad­dress the dif­fi­culty of vari­able im­age dis­play pa­ram­e­ters, ad­just­ing file treat­ment ac­cord­ingly. In many cases it may be ad­van­ta­geous to pro­duce two ver­sions of each im­age des­tined for on­line ex­hi­bi­tion – one for desk­top view­ing and one for mo­bile. In this guide we ex­plore the key as­pects to con­sider when pre­par­ing work for a port­fo­lio.

The lat­est dig­i­tal cam­eras are ca­pa­ble of out­putting im­ages with na­tive file di­men­sions of 16x12in and above at 300ppi. While ex­cep­tional for printed im­ages, the file sizes of­ten re­sult in slow mo­bile op­er­a­tion. Down-size your files be­fore up­load­ing them to speedup brows­ing on mo­bile de­vices.
