Image file size should not exceed 500kb
Faculty staff portraits: 200x300px
Picture menus: 800x533px
Re-size images before you upload them
1170px is the maximum width of the content area in T4.
Images wider than this will cause search engines to penalize your page.
Portraits for Faculty/Staff Directories
They should be 200x300 (200 pixels wide, 300 pixels tall)
There are many cases where faculty/staff listings need to be shared on multiple pages, i.e. cabinets, committees, task forces. If all images are the same size this will give all directories a clean and organized look.
Images for sliders
All slides in a slideshow need to be the exact same size.
The above image is 1170x445 (1170 pixels wide, 445 pixels tall)
1170 px is the maximum width of the content area. That is the recommended width for slides.
Sliders on the ISU homepage are 1800X685 px because it has a wider content area.
Picture Links Menu
All images used in the Picture Links Menu need to be the exact same size.
We recommend using a 2:3 ratio. Typically, we use 800x533 (800 pixels wide, 533 pixels tall).
