The required size of the photos to be included in the salon's online showcase must have a resolution of at least 1280 x 720 pixels. It may therefore be necessary to resize the photos before they are sent to

The procedure for resizing a photo varies depending on the operating system and device used. Here are the easiest ways to change the height and width of the image in just a few clicks, so that it respects the required resolution.

Resizing a photo with the Mac

The Preview app is pre-installed on all Mac computers and is opened automatically as soon as you click on the photo you want to change. To change the image of a photo, just follow a few steps:

  1. Click on 'Tools'.

  2. Make sure that the option "pixels" is selected in the drop-down menu

  3. Enter the parameters: 1280 width and 720 height

  4. Click on "OK".

It is advisable to leave the option "Resize proportionally" active to avoid the image being distorted.

Resize a photo with Windows

Resizing a photo is also very easy on Windows. You can do this directly from the Photos app pre-installed on your computer, which will open automatically when you click on the image to be resized. After opening the photo, proceed as follows:

  1. Click on the three dots on the list of icons above the image

  2. Choose the option "Resize image" from the drop-down menu

  3. Enter the parameters: 1280 width and 720 height;

  4. Click on the "Save" button

  5. Choose the folder where you want to save the photo and again on "Save".

Resize a photo with Android

The procedure for resizing photos on Android can change depending on the device you have. The manufacturers of smartphones and tablets equipped with this system often deeply customise the user interface and, therefore, the editing options on the image gallery can also change from one device to another.

If you cannot change the image size on your Android device, you can rely on an external app that can be downloaded free of charge from the Play Store. Here are five of the most popular and used ones:

  • Resize Image

  • Image Resizer

  • Photo & Picture Resizer

  • Image Compress & Resize

  • Photo Resizer: Crop, Resize, S

Resize a Photo with iOS/iPadOS

iPhones and iPads also allow you to customise images directly from the Photos app, by choosing size and filters.

You cannot change certain parameters manually, such as the width and height of shots, however, there are free apps available on Apple's official App Store that allow you to resize photos to the desired resolution. Here are some of the most used by iOS/iPadOS users:

  • Image Size


  • Image Size

  • Resize : Photo & Video Edit

  • Desqueeze
