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.

    Important: Never enlarge image sizes. This will result in a lower quality that will not look good.

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

  • 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.
