How to Find your Image Size:
Depending on your computer, the process to find your image size may be different. Here are a couple ways that may help you find your image's size. 

1. Using C4:
Go into your Resource Library, find the image used in your site. Click on "attribute" that corresponds with your image (Fig 1):

 There you will find a table with the Dimensions as HEIGHT/WIDTH (Fig 2)

2. Using any browser (Internet Explorer, Firefox, Google Chrome) If the dimensions are not there,
  1. Right click and select "Save image as..."
  2. Save it to your local computer drive. When it is finished, open the image in your photo viewer, like Windows Photo Viewer or Preview on Mac. Then right click and click "Properties". There you will see the image's dimensions. (Fig 3)
