Header images are used for most main University web pages, including department pages, news and events. Header images need to be cropped to 1000 pixels x 1000 pixels.
When creating a new page, such as an event, you'll add the header image via Content Editor. Your image will automatically be placed into the Header Images folder in the Media Library. You can also add the header image directly into the Media Library before you start working in Content Editor, you just need to make sure it goes into the Header Images folder.
Sitecore modules that include an image should be uploaded to the Media Library before you create the module. You'll need to check the dimension size required for the module you're using.
Adding images directly to the page
Except for blogs (where this is the only option), we ask that you do not add images directly to web pages from the Rich Text Editor. Please use the Image Gallery module instead (or the Hero Image in news and event items).
The reason for this is that the website is mobile-responsive and so adding images directly to the page needs to be done in a particular way. Also, directly-added images do not work well visually. The image will be forced full-width in the paragraph, which is why using the module is better as it is designed to work with mobiles.
If you do need to add an image to the page for any reason, please contact email@example.com.
Staff and Student Directory images
Images are rarely used on the Staff and Student Directories as these sites are focused on providing information and guidance. If you think you need to add an image, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
