PDI sizing

This is defined in the rules, but if a picture tells a thousand words, here they are graphically.

Either dimension can be less then the specified maximum, so to get the best quality projection you should resize your images to have one dimension the maximum size, and the other equal to or less than maximum size.

If you submit images less than this, the projected quality will decrease. If you submit images larger than this, the DiCentra software will scale them down as the projector cannot exceed these dimensions, and whilst Dicentra does seem to do a good job of this, some distortion or cropping might occur as a result.
