When I upload a high-resolution image, will EMMA automatically change it to medium resolution? If not, I guess I should change the resolution before uploading. I don't want to slow down the page loads for my customers.

Hi there! The Emma application will downsize images if they are too large, but it will never upsize images or change the resolution of your image. Check out our Resource Center for recommendations on image size!

Emily...I have a question for you re. the downsizing of images. If one of our users uploads a 2MB image file that is 1200x1200px at 300dpe  for example, and I want that image to be 200x200 72dpi, will EMMA reduce the file size??? or will I still have a 2MB file? thanks in advance. Debbie

Hi Debbie -- Great question!

In your scenario, we wouldn't downsize that image at the point of upload because it's below our 1280 maximum. Once it’s in a mailing, it will be sized down to the placeholder size at time of send. So, definitely way below the original 2MB size, but the end size will vary based on the placeholder in the mailing.

To add a bit more context to that, Debbie, no matter what dpi value you upload, we only look at and honor the pixel value. While our editor views all images at 72dpi, that won't affect the dpi at the point of send, since that's primarily a print media specification thing anyway. :)
