Re-sizing your submitted images

The LCC projector display size is 1920 x 1080 pixels and your images will show better if they fit the screen, either fitting the width (1920 pixels) or the height (1080 pixels) or both. Images that are smaller than either the width or height won’t show as well.

NOTE: It is  OK if your images are larger.

Here are some resources with instructions for resizing your images.
