Images are important, but they must serve a purpose on the web. Your images should deliver a sense of place to future students.

Remember: images are NOT the most important part of your pages.


  • General rule: No larger than 600 px wide and 1 MB.
  • Large images make the pages difficult to load, and certain browsers will always display the image at full-size. 
  • Before inserting, images should resized to be as close as possible to the size the images should be viewed.
