According to Columbia's secondary, "any file larger than 2" x 3" will not be accepted." How can a digital file be smaller or larger than 2x3 inches? Do they mean if I print out the photo, the photo can't be larger by 2x3?

Haha, what an interesting way to refer to picture size. There's really no way to convert inches to pixels because pixel density isn't something that's set. I guess just go with a small picture to be on the safe side?

I'm now imagining OP submitting a Minecraft-like picture of himself.

Well I think the 2x3 requirement a relic of when Columbia required a physical photo mailed in. It appears the limit of the photo is 3mb with no restrictions on photo size
