You can now upload high resolution photos to your listings in Paragon — which means the photos you add can be bigger and better.
Due to a 2013 enhancement by LPS MLS Solutions, Paragon can now accept the following photo sizes:
- Maximum Allowable File Size: 10MB (Doubled from previous limit).
- Maximum Photo Size: 1280 x 960 (Doubled from previous limit).
- Photo File Size: 128K (Quadrupled from previous limit).
Notes about photo compression, file size and image size: File size is the size of the actual file. Image size refers to the resolution of the photo. The resolution of the image dictates its clarity. If a photo is over 128K in file size, the system will compress the image. If you do upload photos larger than the 128K limit, the images cannot exceed 10MB. Paragon allows a maximum resolution of 1280 by 960. If a photo is under the 128K limit but has a resolution larger than the maximum, the system will compress the image. In both cases compression can reduce the image quality.
Hint: You can use Microsoft Windows to quickly determine image size — just mouse over the photo and the file details will display in a pop up window.

resizing images. For a list of recommended easy-to-use tools,
More photo notes:
1. LPS recommends the following photo formats: .jpeg, .gif and .png.
