File Sizes and Types

Last Updated: Jan 27, 2017 09:49AM CST

What size should my media files be (images, video, audio, documents)?

So long as images (.jpg, .jpeg, .png, .gif, .tif, .tiff, .bmp, .tga) are under 5 MB, they can be uploaded to SlideRoom (unless otherwise stated on the media step). Images do not have to be a particular size, as our servers will process them to fit our system. Our processors will resize anything larger than 1280 x 1280 x 72 ppi to fit within those limitations.

Your video must be less than 250 MB in size; your audio file needs to be less than 30 MB in size; and your documents must be less than 10 MB (unless otherwise stated on the Portfolio step). So long as you meet the size requirement and have a video that is in the proper format, our system will process the video to fit the SlideRoom software. For further help with compression, please read our answer about video compression.

What types of media files does SlideRoom accept?

SlideRoom can accept any media file type. The file types below, however, are optimized for viewing in a browser, so they will look the best in your SlideRoom portfolio.

Please note that organizations restrict the file types they are willing to accept. The fact that the file type is in this list does not mean the organization to which you are applying accepts it. Please check the instructions in the Portfolio section of your application for a list of accepted file types.
