The rules require that.
A horizontal (landscape) image should be no larger than 1024 pixels wide.
A vertical (portrait) image should be no larger than 768 pixels high.
• Maximum Image Width (horizontal) is 1024 pixels.
• Maximum Image Height (vertical) is 768 pixels.
• Images MUST be JPEG files.
Caution Once the image is resized it is highly recommended that you do a "save as" and not "save".
To do this go to File >Save As and save the file with the name you plan to enter the image with .
This way you keep your original copy of the file safe as you might want to reedit the photo .
