When we are uploading images, many are REALLY big. What is the optimum size?
It kind of depends on how students want to use the image, but anything over about 1000 pixels square will take up the whole page on smaller screens. I usually aim for something in the 300-500 pixel range. If you don't have a simple image editor available for students to resize images, you can find lots of services available if you google "image resizer" (you'll have to test out a few and see which ones aren't blocked by your district filter).
For what it's worth, my students use Google Drawings because they can resize the canvas by the pixel. They import the image they want to the canvas, resize it, then download it into whatever format they need. Hope this is helpful.
I have just ONE girl who can not get an image to download into the Web Lab. When I look at her on the teacher end I can see these images available in the HTML column but they will not show up on her list as being available.(Not sure if I am making myself very clear, sorry!) Ideas anyone?
@luftj Hi Jan,
This definitely sounds like a bug. Can you report it through code studio? If you go to the level and choose "Report a Bug" from the hamburger menu (three horizontal lines) at the top right corner, it will help us to figure out what's going on.
I have been having my students add the attribute width or height. example It seems to work but I don't know if this is proper technique.
