Choosing Your Images

The Foothill College website includes responsive design, an approach to web design that makes web pages render well on a variety of devices and window or screen sizes. With that comes some restrictions when selecting images for your pages.

Before uploading and inserting images into your web pages, review image best practices and dimension requirements below for the Foothill website.  OU Campus makes sticking to these rules easy by providing an OU Campus image editor for resizing images once upload into into your images folder.

Best Practices

  • Use the image dimension guidelines when selecting photos to use for your webiste.
  • Always resize and optimize your images. You can do this in OmniUpdate or a Photo Editor, such as Photoshop.
  • Select photos that help tell a story.
  • Create ALT TAG descriptions that describe the image.
  • For biography pages, keep the width of the headshot consistent throughout.
  • When naming an image file, use all lower case, no spaces, only hypens (-), include the width dimension, and included allowable file extensions.
  • Supported Image File Types: bmp, gif, jpe, jpeg, jpg, png, svg, tif, tiff

Image Dimension Requirements

Website Banner 1300 x 750

If you would like to recommend a different image for your website global banner, please note:

  • The banner is responsive and the visual display of the image will shift on different devices.
  • It's best to use a textured or campus image for the banner and include images of people on your Main Content area instead.
