Please be aware of the sizes of images you are uploading and using on your pages. Also, you can safely compress all images to ensure fast page loading by uploading them to TingJpg and then uploading the compressed version.
Images should be selected with the audience in mind – showing students, activities, and locations that will resonate with each specific audience. Images should appear authentic and candid, as opposed to staged and formal. Please do not use generic clipart, collages of images, older graphics that are unrelated to Marshall University, or add borders/drop shadow to any image.
For images to add to your website you're welcome to use any photo found on muphotos.marshall.edu.
You can added a hero image to any page by including a Featured Image in the WordPress editor. The correct size of the image should be at least 2,000 pixels wide and the height should be no larger than 750 pixels.
You can position the hero image within the hero section using the Background Position meta box.

If you put '100' in for the first number, it'll put the right edge of the image on the ridge edge of the browser window.
If you enter '0' in the second number, it'll put the top of the image at the top of the hero image section, cutting off what's at the bottom outside of the height for the hero image.
If you enter '100' in the second number, it'll put the bottom of the image at the bottom of the hero image section, cutting off what's at the top outside of the height for the hero image.
If you enter '50' for this number, it'll put the center of the image in the center of the hero image area.
