How to resize an Image?

If an image is also required to be resized, you would want to contact your personal website support if they offer a feature to upload and/or resize images on their website since they are a separate company from Doba that we do not control or own.

If your website does not accept URL links to images on our website or needs to be resized, here are ways you can download our images from our website and how to resize the images to work with your requirements.

-------------------------------------------------

Resize the image in Doba then download

To download and save an image, take the following steps:

If wish to resize the image first, in Doba select the 'Resize image' link under the image first and enter a size such as 900 for the width.

Click the 'Resize' button to verify if it allows a minimum size of 900.

It may display the size for example 'Actual dimensions: 800w x 800h' but still download the size specified.

You may enter a higher number than 900 to see if it allows an actual dimension that is higher than 900.

Click on the 'Download Image' link.

The file name will appear in a space and you can change the file name if you would like.

Select the folder you wish to download the image file to such as the Desktop folder.

The 'Save as Type' field default is JPEG format (*.jpg). If other selections are available, choose JPEG format (*.jpg).

Click the 'Save' button to save the image.  Depending on the browser, you may need to click on the 'Save as' option to change the filename, select a folder and/or select the JPEG format.

 

After you save the image to your computer, bring up your website and select the option to upload an image for that item. Generally you would have an image field to import an image. This process differs depending on the website you use, so contact your website's support if need further assistance.

Google.com is a great place to find additional images of your products.


Type the title of the product into Google and search.
Under the Google search bar is the option to search the Images found.

As you move through the images you can see the pixel sizes. For sites like eBay, 500x500 is the minimum size requirement. When you find the correct image with the right size. Download and save image for your listing.

Resize the image in a browser then download

Because each browser has their own unique method to download an image from a browser window, the following steps may be easier since these steps are similar in most browsers. The steps are basically to copy the URL link of the image into the browser's address field, change the size of the image, download the new sized image and then upload the image to your website.

Right-click the image (or ctrl-click for Macs that don't have a right mouse button).

Depending on the Internet browser, click the 'View Page Source' or 'View Source' link.

Use the Internet browser's Find feature (Ctrl - F keys) to search for .jpg.

When found, click and hold your cursor just to the left of the URL (http:// web address) and drag the cursor over the URL to highlight it.  

                                          For example:     http://images.doba.com/products/2979/HC306.jpg?maxX=240&maxY=240

Right-click the highlighted URL and select 'Copy' link. This step copies the URL to your computer's clipboard.

Right-click in the browser's address field and click the 'Paste' link.

If wish to resize the image first, in the browser change the size part of the URL to 900 as an example. In this example change   

                                        http://images.doba.com/products/2979/HC306.jpg?maxX=240&maxY=240

                                          To:

                                         http://images.doba.com/products/2979/HC306.jpg?minX=900&minY=900

Press the Enter key to resize the image in the browser

Right-click the image.

Depending on the Internet browser, click the 'Save image as' or 'Save picture as' link.

The file name will appear in a space and you can change the file name if you would like.

Select the folder you wish to download the image file to such as the Desktop folder.

The 'Save as Type' field default is JPEG format (*.jpg). If other selections are available, choose JPEG format (*.jpg).

Click the 'Save' button to save the image.

After you save the image to your computer, bring up your website and select the option to upload an image for that item. Generally you would have an image field to import an image.
