Preferred Format: JPEG or JPG.
By far the most preferred type of images to use on the web for
photos is the JPEG format. You can usually tell if your images
are JPEGs as the file name extension will normally be .jpg or .jpeg.
The JPEG format is the most popular because it enables a high
quality photo image but is usually compressed in file size so
that the image loads quickly. This is especially important
when your clients are connected using a dial-up connection.
For small images that are not photos such as your realtor logos, the
gif is acceptable.
While JPEG is the preferred format we understand that is sometimes
hard to get the photos in the format you need and therefore we
have customized the HouseFlash software to accept several
other formats. Note that some of these typically have a larger file
size so may take you longer to upload.
While the HouseFlash software will upload these image types,
for efficiency the software will convert all of them to JPEG
format so that your clients get the best picture quality in the
Accepted formats for photos are:
You can usually tell if your images are one of those file types
as the file name extension will be one of those names.
