Rise optimizes media for faster downloads without compromising quality by using a mix of industry standards and the latest technologies. So you can use high-quality media in your courses and let Rise do all the work of optimizing them for learners. Here are our recommendations for:
Rise uses cutting-edge image compression that reduces file sizes with virtually no loss of quality. For this reason, we recommend using high-quality images and letting Rise prepare them for web delivery. For example, compare these before and after images.

In addition to using high-quality images, it’s a good idea to use images where important details won’t be lost if the edges are cropped. Rise courses are fully responsive, so your images might have different dimensions as they adapt to different devices and orientations. For example, compare how this image appears on a tablet in landscape mode and how it appears on a smartphone in portrait mode.

Phone in Portrait Mode
The maximum file size for each image is 5 GB.
Pro tip: If you'd like an image to keep its specific file format and not undergo compression, you can opt out of image optimization on a case-by-case basis. Just add
_NOPROCESS_ to the name of your image file. It'll upload and display exactly as you saved it. Keep in mind that file size limits still apply.
We recommend using high-quality videos with a 16:9 aspect ratio for the best results in your published courses.
Rise compresses videos so they have smaller file sizes while maintaining quality, converting videos to H.264 video and AAC audio in MP4 containers.
The maximum file size for each video is 5 GB.
We recommend recording narration directly in Rise or importing high-quality audio files. Rise optimizes them for broadcasting without sacrificing sound quality.
The maximum file size for each audio clip is 5 GB.
Mac Users: Older versions of Safari don’t support audio recording. We recommend that you update to the latest version of Safari. Alternately, you can use Google Chrome or Firefox when you need to record narration in Rise.
