Placeit has a limit to the size of images you can upload. This limit is 7500 pixels for the image’s longest size.

If you have gotten an error saying your image is too large, please follow these instructions.

On Mac (OS X)

1. Select the image on your Finder/Folder and open it on Preview (opens there by default if you double click it).

2. Select “Tools -> Adjust Size”

3. Change the size of the largest side to 7500px and save your image.

On Windows

  1. Right click the image on your Finder/Folder and choose “Edit”
  2. This will open Paint. Next, click the “Resize” button.
  3. Change the size of the largest side to 7500px. Make sure “Maintain aspect ratio” is selected. When it’s done, save your image.

    But when you resize and save you lose the transparent background. How do you resize without losing transparency?

    Hi Jill! We have now our own image cropper in which you won’t lose your transparency and you can resize your images right in your browser:

      Hello Valeria, In the Place it image cropper you can’t upload files that are bigger then 7500. So unfortunitly this is not a solution. I would love to here if you have any other solutions to resize images bigger then 7500px without losing transparicy

        Hey Koenh! Unfortunately, our cropper is limited to a max file size of 7500px 🙁 for the time being. Hopefully we’ll be able to change this soon!
