Hi Peter,

I know CLA's Digital Content Library uses images where:
For each of the 220,000-ish images, these 4 file sizes exist.
You can read more about the logic behind these standards here.

Hope this helps,

I'm interested if any groups have standardized on image sizes. If you have, would you let me know:

* what those sizes are
* how extensively they're used (a few pages? hundreds? thousands?)
* the reasoning for your choices

We're looking at possible changes to the Images Library and would like to go with commonly used sizes if they're appropriate for our needs, rather than coming up with another set of sizes.

I'll compile anything that comes through and share with the group.
