Glastonbury Festival 2014

How to resize/crop a picture

If you wish to register to buy tickets for Glastonbury, you will need to submit a  photograph.

The picture must be less than 1MB size, in JPEG format.

It will also need to be portrait-shaped (ie, higher than it is wide). Landscape-shaped pictures (wider than they are high) will not be accepted.

See below for instructions on how to crop/resize your pictures on PC, Mac and online.


Cropping/resizing on a PC (Windows Vista)


To crop:
1. Open Windows Photo Gallery by clicking the Start button, clicking All Programs, and then clicking Windows Photo Gallery.
2. Click the picture you want to correct, and then, on the toolbar, click Fix.
3. Click Crop Picture.
4. Drag the crop frame around within the picture, to make it into the shape of a classic passport photo.
5. Click Apply.

To resize:
1. In Windows Photo Gallery, select the photo you want to resize, and then, on the File menu, click Resize.
2. In the Resize dialog box, select the size you want to make the photo. Medium 1024 should be big enough.
3. Click Resize and Save.

Photo Gallery will save the resized file in the same location as the original, and will add the dimensions to the file name of the smaller copy. For example, if the original photo is named "Scooter" and is saved in your Pictures folder, the resized photo is named "Scooter (1024x683)" and is also in the Pictures folder.

Cropping/resizing online

Several websites allow you to crop and resize pictures online. We've found www.picresize.com to work well - but we would stress that this is an external site over which we have no control.

If you do choose to use picresize.com, simply upload your picture, drag the crop box to classic passport photo shape and then click the Crop Selection button.

We would suggest selecting Custom Size from the Resize Your Picture menu, and choosing a width of 500 pixels. Also, please remember to Save As a JPG.
