I just have to vent. I work inhouse and at times we need headshots provided by our employees. I know, I know. There are numerous issues around this, but the one that I see the most with the pictures we receive is that the photos are ridiculously low-res. Just this week I got a photo that was 2.3 kb.

I’m not even sure how that’s possible in tis day and age when pretty much everyone owns a smartphone with a high-res camera. Heck, I know flip phones that take better pictures than 2 kb.
