Resizing Photos and Other Images

  • Use the Right Size for Your Image

    IUP webpages look best when you use images that are correctly sized to fit them.

  • It is always best to resize your images before you upload them to your Ektron library. This gives you better control over the reduction process and ensures that your website visitors are not downloading unnecessarily large images. This also ensures that your photos do not become distorted, pixelated, or fuzzy due to improper resizing from within the CMS.

    IT Support Center clients that have the administrative desktop currently have access to Microsoft Image Composer. See instructions for resizing images using Microsoft Image Composer (PDF).

    You can also use Photoshop to resize your images.

    If you have difficulty using or do not have access to these or another photo-resizing tool, there are tools to do this available online.

  • Important!

    Image file names that contain punctuation will not show up properly on the website.

    Be certain the file name does not contain commas, apostrophes, etc. before uploading the image.
