Images should be the same size (width) as the space you are filling and no wider. This page diagram shows the maximum width in pixels for each area of the page.
Open images in a photo editor to resize them if necessary. Large photos that are resized (dimensions changed) inside CommonSpot still retain the original size (in KB/MB) and may take a long time to load.
Photos used in the Faculty and Staff profile pages must be 200px wide by 300px high. If not, the person may appear squished since the photo is forced to that size.
When you have an image on your desktop that you are going to upload, make sure you use a title that is descriptive, not just the file number. Images are available to all our CMS authors, and a descriptive title helps in searching. The title can also be used as the Alternate Text Tag which should be descriptive enough to provide a mental picture for people using the screen reader setting on the computer. If your title is not descriptive (making it easier to search), you should still make the Alternate Text a full description.
To insert an image you need to be in a
formatted text block element, then
click the image icon.
You may choose an image that has been uploaded previously. Images are included in a Public Gallery that can be searched - either by Subsites or over the entire UWRF site.
Or, you may upload a new image from your desktop (that you have sized correctly).
There is also an option to upload multiple images at one time before you add them to a page.
Linking an image is also done in the Image Properties screen.
If you have a new version (like an updated mug shot), use the Upload New Image Version.
To display multiple images in a cycle (slide show), see Image Cycle.
