I need help communicating with my graphic designers

    I'm a backend web developer primarily, but do have a knack for the technical parts of web design like CSS and Sass. I work with a team of graphic designers who create mockups for the websites I build, but do not understand anything about frontend web technologies like HTML and CSS.

    I just finished writing an email about why I can't provide a single "preferred image resolution" for a comp that makes use of multiple image aspect ratios, and there's a big part of me that feels like I shouldn't have to say that to a designer. As in, I shouldn't have to say that "2000px x 2000px isn't a suitable resolution for a 16:9 image."

    I've hit this wall often enough that I now believe that I am doing something wrong. I very frequently bring up aspect ratio when talking about image resolution but am met with blank stares. Am I doing this wrong?

    I'd appreciate any advice on this, thank you.

    Say ‘rectangle shapes need rectangle images not squares’. Many graphic designers did not study css or html. They practiced using point and click software. So they may not have the technical knowledge that a front end developer would have.

    It seems to me that you need to consult with experts. I needed to make a presentation at the university. I struggled for a long time over the resolution of photographs and nothing came of it. A friend recommended me essay writers and I decided to consult. I don’t know what I’d do if I hadn’t asked for help and didn’t use additional resources. I certainly would not have had time to submit the presentation on time.
