Feature Image Specs

Feature images should be cropped to a 3×4 aspect ratio.  Cropping them to 600 pixels wide by 800 pixels tall format is ideal.

For consistency, try to crop all your headshots in a similar fashion, with the same amount of white space around the head and shoulders.

Free Faculty/Staff Photos

We (the School of Medicine Information Technology) provide free photos sessions about four times a year. These sessions are a way for you to get free photos to use for your profiles.  Simply inform your co-workers of upcoming photo sessions and ask them to get their photo taken.  After the session, we will send each participant a link where they can download their photo.  Your co-workers then need to send you (the site administrator/editor) their photo.  These images are large and will need to be resized and cropped before you add them to your web site.

We will announce upcoming photo sessions to our Web Authors Listserv (sign up for our listserv), in the VitalSigns newsletter and on this announcement page.
