When you talk about image size, you mean in the individual sections? I use a quite large resolution, and thus don’t notice these problems - I’m not sure what I can do to address them without compromising the quality of the pictures.
I was looking for a liberal arts college in the US (was tired of the French education system) and wanted to be close to family or friends so that reduced my choices to California or Colorado.
I’m looking for an internship to gain a bit of experience before I go into grad school. I think it will help with my applications as well, since there is no major in design at Colorado College.
