Best Practices for Image Management

To ensure consistent report layout, some recommended best practices are:

Image files must be 5mb or less in size – REQUIRED

Images should be taken in the same size  – Examples:

1080 x 1080 pixels – Recommended
You’ll see this 1:1 ratio image size used widely across social media, namely Instagram and Facebook posts.

1920 x 1080 pixels
This standard image size is widely seen across high-definition TVs, presentations, and social media cover photos. It follows the 16:9 aspect ratio.

1280 x 720 pixels
This size follows the standard high definition format featured in photography and film. It fits the 16:9 aspect ratio.

Edit and update orientation for all images in your preferred image editor prior to adding images to objects and comparables.

Report Size Considerations – The size of the images files affects the size of the appraisal report (Word document) and PDF.  The larger the image size, the larger the report file will be.  The smaller the image size, the smaller the report file will be and easier to deliver electronically (as Word document or PDF).
