Next on the horizontal navigation menu bar is Photos tab. For performance reason, there are some restrictions with regards to uploading photos/images:
- The system allows you to upload photos/images in your profile page/activity feed but there is a limit of 1 MB imposed per image. There will be a restriction of the user’s data usage via the images at 50 MB and a reminder will be sent to the student to delete some of its images. Those who do not comply with this restriction will subject to barring from using the website.
- The reason for doing so is because if the file size is too big, it will take a longer time to load and will affect the learning experience. The biggest size of your image is the profile cover image which is of size 1300×254 pixels. A common image of that size is usually 60KB.
- For images in activity feed, please use free photo sharing services like Flickr, Dropbox, Imgur etc as you can paste a direct link of the image i.e. the images are embedded in the post and it is like an upload image. The links must allow public access and do take note that some free photo sharing services like Google Photos do not allowing previewing of the photos using direct link at this moment.
- We will explore how to post these images in the next few pages.
