help you display the best possible photos of your property. Below are main
reasons why your photos may appear distorted:
Photo size is too large or too small. Your original
photo should be as close to 400 X 300 as possible. If your photo is too small,
it will appear "stretched", it too large, it will appear "squished" in the
You should avoid "portrait" (vertical) format of
photos, as they may appear "stretched" in width an "squished" in height. Your
photos should be in traditional "landscape" (horizontal) format.

locate your property. Please cut and paste the address you have entered on the
listing into the "Google
Local" window to see if your address is correct. If it is incorrect,
