You can include images and videos in your project description by clicking the image or video icons at the top of the project description editor. Doing so will open a window that allows you to upload your media files directly from your computer.
Images must be 200MB or less. We accept most major image formats, but for best results upload one of our recommended file types: JPEG, PNG, GIF, TIFF, or BMP. It's best to scale your images to 680px or higher before uploading so that they'll appear properly on our site.
The above image specifications also apply to .GIF files. Due to the way these uploads are processed, not all animated .GIF files can be successfully uploaded or displayed. Instead of an animated .GIF file, consider using a series of images to illustrate your idea. Alternatively, you may be able to upload the animated .GIF file if you reduce the number of frames that it contains.
Project videos must be 5GB or less, while videos added to a project description must be 3GB or less.
We accept the following video file types: MOV, MPEG, AVI, MP4, 3GP, FLV, or WMV.
Note: We take the video file you upload and create a 640 x 360 (16:9 ratio) version to display on your project page.
For video encoding, use WMV format in Windows. On Mac, use H.264. In both cases, the key variable is the “bit rate,” so look for that box. If it’s measured in kilobits per second (kbps), try 1500 to start. If it’s measured in megabits per second (Mbps), try 1.5. If the file is too big: make that number smaller. If the quality seems bad: make it bigger.
You can also embed videos and audio (from YouTube, Vimeo, SoundCloud, Bandcamp, etc.).
