upload a beer image



If the BeerID isn't , please contact an administrator or try the edit page again.

Here's the dealio:
  • If your image is horizontally oriented (aspect ratio greater than 1:1, width to height) then rotate 90 degrees counter clockwise. (Example: 120px wide by 100px tall)
  • Your image must have a JPG or GIF extension (JPG format is strongly encouraged!)
  • It must be less than 15k
  • Your image should be 120 or 240 pixels wide
  • Golden ratio heights for these widths are 194 and 388, respectively
All set?

Go for it!

IMPORTANT: ASPECT RATIO
Shoot for an ideal run over rise of the golden ratio: ~1.618. If you don't hit the mark, try to hit in between 1.418 and 1.818.

HOW DO YOU CALCULATE THIS RATIO?
It's easy. Just divide the number of pixels high by the number of pixels wide. 147 pixels tall by 100 pixels wide is 1.47; this is a good ratio.




WHY DO THIS?
1. It provides a CONSISTENT layout around the site where beers are displayed. A consistent aspect ratio means a better more stable and comfortable visual feel.
2. It may result in better jpeg compression. Compression algorithms seek like clusters.
3. It's simply aesthetically more pleasing. The golden ratio is intrinsically more beautiful to humans.



NOTE: If you have problems, try uploading your image first to tinypic, then uploading the changed image.
