Image sizes for classroom projection
Images should be at least 1500 pixels on the long edge. The “Medium” export option in LUNA creates images that are optimally sized for use in slide decks for projection. For images that are very wide and skinny, such as a hand scroll painting, please use the “Large” export option.
