Basic Size Guidelines

Maximum content width
This is the maximum width of the content area. Images can be wider than this, but should not exceed recommended file size.

File size
Should not exceed 1MB. 500kb should be large enough for most images.

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.


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).
