Frequently Asked Questions: Uploading Your Photo

I'm receiving an "Invalid File Type" message when trying to upload my photo.

The name of the file you are uploading must have one of the listed file extensions (.jpg, .gif, or .png). If your photo is in another format, you can either choose a photo in a supported format, or convert it using an image editor. Renaming the file with a different extension will cause an error; it must be converted. Please note that LSAC cannot offer assistance editing your photos.

I’m receiving a “The resolution of this photo is too low, and will not display clearly when printed” message when trying to upload my photo.

When resized to fit on the LSAT Admission Ticket, the photo you chose will appear blurry or distorted due to its low image resolution. Submitted photos must be at least 72 pixels per inch. Please choose a different photo. Please note that LSAC cannot offer assistance editing your photos.

I’m receiving a “This photo is too small” message when trying to upload my photo.

The photo you have chosen will not fill the photo display area of the LSAT Admission Ticket. Please choose a different photo that meets the required minimum dimensions of 195 pixels by 195 pixels.

I'm receiving a "This photo is too large" message when trying to upload my photo.

We were unable to reduce the size of your photo to fit the dimensions of the photo display area of the LSAT Admission Ticket. Please resize it down using an image editor or choose a smaller photo. Please note that LSAC cannot offer assistance editing your photos.

I’m receiving a “This photo's file size is too large” message when trying to upload my photo.

We were unable to reduce the file size of your photo enough to save it with your LSAT Admission Ticket. Please reduce its size using an image editor or choose a smaller file. Please note that LSAC cannot offer assistance editing your photos.

I'm receiving a "This file appears to be corrupt or damaged" message when trying to upload my photo.

We are unable to process the photo you selected. There appears to be a problem with the file itself that is preventing us from adding it to your LSAT Admission Ticket. Please choose another photo.

The LSAT photo preview shows my photo both in color and black and white. Do I need to print my ticket in color?

You may print your ticket using either a color or back and white printer. Color is not required. The ticket preview shows you both versions so you can see how it will print on whichever printer you use, and so you can make sure your submitted color photo will look acceptable if printed in black and white.
