For Banner Images (header images across the top of pages):

  • JPEG files

  • 2100 x 700 pixels is ideal for minimal cropping
  • 300 dpi resolution (or at least 150 dpi)

For Galleries or Exhibitions:

Images:

  • JPEG or PNG files

  • Keep under 1MB (2MB max)

  • Usually 72dpi resolution and 1,000x1,000 pixels will meet that size

  • Make the file name: Student Name, Title of Work 

Videos:

  • YouTube videos are best

  • We need the embed code or link to video (click “Share” then “Embed”)

  • If there is audio (especially anyone talking) it needs to be Closed Captioned for accessibility

  • YouTube can do it for you (How to add automatic YouTube captions)

Audio:

  • Soundcloud is best

  • We need the embed code (click “Share” then “Embed”)

  • We also need a link to a typed transcript (it can be a shared google doc link)

Other Media:

  • We can also embed files from google drive, for example PDFs, Slides, Sheets

  • The file’s share settings must be set to: “Anyone with link can view”

  • We need the embed code (for most file types click “File” then “Publish to web”)

  • For PDFs, open it in a new window, then click the three dots in upper-right corner, and choose “embed item”

  • No labels
