We recently had a request to resize multiple people profile pictures. The photos were all the same dimensions but the file size was too large. Instead of having to resize each image one-by-one to meet the image requirements, try batch processing in Photoshop.
You can find detailed instructions with screenshots in this tutorial.
- All images should be in one folder
- Create an action in Photoshop
- Set the Image Size
- File Save As
- Close the Image Action
- File Automate Batch
For profile images, the best image dimensions are 600px wide by 900px high
- Profile image dimensions must correspond to the w:h ratio 2:3 in order to display correctly in the proifle
- For best results, profile images should include space over the individual's head, to compensate for AEM's automatic cropping in the people page gallery view
