What images to use?

When choosing images, avoid using generic stock photos. Instead, use images that are related to your Story and upload them at the highest resolution possible, as this will make it easier for journalists and readers to resize those images and use in different channels without losing quality. If you have the original (or "raw") photo file from your camera, use that to ensure the best quality is preserved.

There is no size limit on size or resolution when it comes to uploading to Prezly, so take advantage of that when creating your Newsroom.
