Problem Uploading Photos to My Listing in FlexMLS

The photos are most likely over the 5 MB file size limit. You will need to resize the photo in order to get it into FlexMLS. The first thing to do is verify the file size of the photo, to do this follow the steps below.

  1. Find where the photo is located at on your PC or disk.
  2. Right click on the File and go to Properties.
  3. In the File Size section you will find out how big the file is; if it is over 5 MB you will have to resize the photo. (If the file size is 5 MB or smaller contact the helpline you may have other propblems.)
  4. When resizing phots we suggest you start with a pixel size for the width of 1500 pixels, it should make the height proportionate. Then save the file and repeat steps 1 – 3 until your file is 5 MB or less.
