How to resize a picture


If you wish to register to buy tickets for Glastonbury, you will need to submit a  photograph.

The picture must be less than 1MB size, in JPEG format.

It will also need to be portrait-shaped (ie, higher than it is wide). Landscape-shaped pictures (wider than they are high) will not be accepted.

The photo rotating and cropping tool is available when uploading your photo to the registration
website, however before you can upload and crop your photo you will need to ensure your photo
is less than 1MB in size.
