• Make certain that the image you want to upload does not contain any punctuation in the filename. Commas, apostrophes, etc., can cause the image to not show up properly on the page. (Dashes and underscores are allowed.) Edit the filename before uploading the image.

  • Images With Long Descriptions
    Images that contain a lot of information (graphs, maps, organizational charts, etc.) need a way to convey their information to the disabled community, especially those who use screen readers to understand a webpage.
    Resizing Photos
    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.
