DJ-Classifieds keeps the original images/pictures when you upload them so if in future you want to change the template of your website or just alter dimensions of the images in adverts, categories or profiles to better fit you can always do this following this tutorial. (Video tutorial available)

When you or the user on your website uploads the image (or images) it's being saved in original size and additionally, the engine of DJ-Classifieds creates the versions of the image with sizes that are set in options (Components -> DJ-Classifieds -> Options -> Images tab). 

Important: "Store original images" option needs to be enabled. store-original-images-dj-classifieds 

If you later want to change images sizes you first need to change settings (dimensions) of the images in options (Components -> DJ-Classifieds -> Options -> Images tab) and later navigate to where you want the dimensions of the image to be processed and resized.
