Scaling Photos (Windows)

Photos taken with digital cameras or certain smartphones can be too large to upload to KLIPS 2.0. If this is the this case, you will have to scale the photo. In the following, the procedure of scaling using the program "Paint" (which is pre-installed in Windows) is explained.

1. Open "Paint".

2. In Paint, open the photo you wish to edit. Click on the blue symbol on the left, select "open" and choose the relevant image from your photos.

3. If your photo is at the wrong angle (as in the example below), please rotate it so it will be displayed correctly on the UCCard later on. To do this, click on the button "Rotate" and select the appropriate option (in the example it is a "clockwise rotation 90°").

4. In order to scale the photo to the right size, click on the button "Change size".

5. The dialogue box "Change size / Drag" will open. In the settings, click on the option "Pixel" and chose the function "retain aspect ratio" (as shown in the screenshot).

6. The recommended size is 204 x 272 Pixels - please do not go below these values. If the aspect ration of your photo is not in the format 3:4, please type a slightly higher value, such as "220", into the "horizontal" field. Afterwards check whether the value in the "vertical" box is higher than "272". If not, also increase this value. Confirm the selection with the "Ok" button.

7. Your photo is now scaled to the right size. Save it by clicking on the disk symbol.

8. You can now upload your photo to KLIPS 2.0
