Choosing the right picture quality and ratio for your widgets, news articles, events, icons, and such in Colibo is quite simple.
As a standard the ratio of the picture needs to be 16:9 and a quality of minimum 848px and a maximum of 1600px. The reason we suggest a maximum of 1600 pixel, is because of the size of the image file. If the size of the picture is too big, your Environment will slow down due to loading time of the image. We suggest that the picture should be a JPG file since it has great balance between the size of the file and quality of the picture.
If you follow these standards your environment will be a smooth and clean experience for your users and yourself.
“Note, that we have a few widgets that differentiate from these standards. We will explain these further on in this article.”
All these widgets need a ratio of 16:9 and a minimum of 848 and a maximum of 1600 pixels:
