I have a quick question concerning the GR3 image I FTP to my webserver.
What should my image dimensions be set to in GR3?
My image looks a tad small but I'm not sure if the template radar program resizes or not.

Thanks !

You can set the size of the radar image for the template on the main GR3 screen on your computer.  Click file—publishing.  The publishing setup box has a place to set the image size.

Thanks for the share on the dimensions of the uploaded image. I'm not positive if Kens Template set resizes the GR3 image or not but I've changed mine so we'll know soon enough :)   It is probably fine as is but to my eyes it could stand to be a touch larger, but that's just my aging eyes.

I use the narrow Saratoga template as well and have set up the GR3 page to show my GR3 images at the width of 620px, rather than the default width of 512px.  So, in addition to changing the default publishing settings on GR3's main screen on your home computer, make sure the GR3-radar-inc.php script for your website is also set to 620px on lines 23 and 24.  That hopefully should do the trick.

Thats what I needed to know. As soon as I get caught up I'll make those changes.
