Tom asked about the size of photos he should deliver to his clients:
I have been uploading photo files to my agents at the guidelines recommended in the September 9th, 2009 article you posted titled "What You Need To Know About Uploading To MLS." Yesterday, I had an agent tell me the 800 x 600 pixels are too small. Up until now no one really complained about it. He also said the minimum should be 1600 x 1200 but prefers 2048 x 1536. What is the new standard everyone is using today? Is there a new standard?
The problem with recommending a specific size is that MLSs run a wide variety of system software. Because of this, there is no standard. Some MLS software does a good job at downsizing if you give them a bigger size than they like but in the past, MLS downsizing has been notorious for mangling photo files, so the theory has always been that if you give them the exact size they want, they end up not touching the files during uploading. Here are my updated recommendations for figuring out what size photos to upload to your MLS:
Of course, it is advisable to also deliver images sized for printing in addition to images sized for the local MLS.
