- Before we jump into adding images to a page,…we're gonna have a quick overview…of Squarespace best practices for your images.…We've got this PDF open,…and these are just general image guidelines to think about…when you're about to add images to Squarespace.…Now, one of the big things is the width.…You gotta make sure that your images are pretty wide.…Should be 1500 pixels wide if possible.…That's the maximum size our system displays.…And your images will be scaled…when they're uploaded to Squarespace.…
You want to save in RGB color mode.…Print mode, CMYK will not render in most browsers…and won't look right.…You want to save your images with the sRGB color profile.…If your images don't look right on mobile devices,…it's most likely because they don't have…that profile embedded.…And you can do that.…It's actually done by default typically…in Photoshop and Illustrator.…We want to save in JPG, GIF, and PNG.…PDF, PSD, TIFF, DOC, these different files…are not web-compatible.…
You really don't have to worry about DPI or PPI…
