Image Compression

For the best results, we highly recommend compressing your images before you uploading your images.

Compressing the images will give you a big reduction in file size without losing quality.

Online Compression

The following free compression tools can be used to prepare your images:

Offline Compression

If you are using Photoshop, you can go to File > Save for Web & Device, and select the Presets to compress your image.

We find that Photshop doesn't always compress to the best size and running it through an online compression tool will still give you the best results.

Image Quality & Dimensions

We encourage you to produce high quality optimised images.

Any files (i.e. images/ spreadsheets/etc) uploaded are downloaded to each player and stored on each player (until the slide is updated or removed). This means the performance is not affected as the files are not downloaded at the time the slide is showing(rather they are pulled from a local folder on the player).

  • Setup your artwork:
    • 100%
    • RGB Colormode
    • jpg [or png (for transparency)]
  • Background Image Dimensions will vary according to the resolution and default orientation of your screen/device.  A standard display will be one of the following:
    • Landscape: 1920 x 1080 pixels or 16:9
    • Portrait: 1080 x 1920 pixels or 9:16
  • Ensure that your ruler measurements are stated in Pixels and setup Guides to allow for the mandatory 40px Top, 50px Left, 50px Right and 100px Bottom Margins.
  • If you have combination of portrait and landscape displays, try creating a 1920 x 1920 px image that works best on both or apply a specific background.
  • Save and optimise JPG/PNG images to fit the size of the screens
