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!

    The image cropper doesn’t work for images larger than 7500 px.

      Hi Oscar!
      I hope you’re doing well. Our image cropper does work. In fact the maximum per image is 7500 px x 7500 px. On the other hand, and to keep in mind, most design or photo editors don’t allow you to create such large sizes -especially for the web, perhaps more suitable for printers-. We suggest you lower the size to be able to work it in a better way.

      Best regards, we hope you found it helpful 🙂

    I have the ability to make my own graphics for some things but I’m not finding it very easy to info on how to make that work with placeit’s ‘load your own image’ feature. I see there’s size limits:what about file type? How to eliminate background? These seem like basics that should be easy to discover but I’m not finding much information about using your own assets at all.

    If you’re struggling to change image dimensions on Windows when the image has a transparent background, you can 1. open the file. 2. click on the three dots 3. click on ”resize image” 4. click on #define custom dimensions. 5. then save a copy. This worked for me. 🙂
