Many of us try to upload a passport size photo along with a signature mostly in the recruitment forms but we get an error that its size is not within the prescribed limits, so that photo or signature is not uploaded which is very frustrating as well. If you are also facing the same kind of a problem then you have come to the right place, we have a solution to this problem.
What is the required size for a photo/signature image for forms?
For example, we share here the guidelines given on the prominent competitive exam 2022 which mentions that - ‘a candidate must have his photograph and signature duly scanned in the .jpg format in such a manner that each file should not exceed 300 KB each and must not be less than 20 KB in size for the photograph and signature.'
This is what you can call a standard required size for uploading your photo and also the signature on the recruitment application forms anywhere in India whereas usually when a photo is clicked from a mobile, it is usually of 1 to 2 MB size as this is what is required for a high resolution photograph with good quality. So for uploading to the recruitment forms, you would need to resize the image file of your photo since there the image doesn’t need to be of high quality as long as the face is sufficiently clear even in a low resolution, so let’s understand how to resize a photo image correctly.
How to resize your photo and signature to the required size?
You can open your already saved front-facing photo or choose one from your phone gallery, laptop, cloud storage, etc. If you are ready to pay for using a software then there are many image editing software available of which, some are free or you would get the license on a chargeable basis for some others. You can also resize your photo image with the old fashioned way of copying the image or opening the saved image file in a Windows picture edit tool of Microsoft Paint. To do this, you can simply select the image and drag it to resize it with the pointer icon (double headed arrow) which will show when you take the cursor to the corner of that image.
