Image Style Guide

General Image Guidelines:

Images of text are not text. Flyers, posters, and word art should not be posted on the site if it can be avoided. These images are difficult to read on mobile devices, and are not accessible to visually impaired visitors. If a flyer must be posted, please ensure that ALL relevent data in the flyer is included in the images Alt Text.

Only post images that you have permission to post. Do not post images you find on the internet unless you have permission from the image owner. Do not post images of students or other people unless you have received permission from them to do so.

Try to keep the focal point of your images on the left. When larger images like Headers and Toppers are viewed on mobile devices, only the left side of the image will be shown.
