The following steps and requirements are intended to ensure that the event images look clear in all cases – on our public websites and on the BLUEview Network campus signage displays. Requirements for all Event Images
Every event submitted on events.fredonia.edumust either have a horizontal 2000-pixel wide by 1500-pixel image that is:
a user-provided, unique, high-quality image, or:
a default image automatically associated with the Event Type.
All event images should be relevant and clearly representative of that event.
All event images must be cropped to a 4:3 horizontal crop at 2000 pixels wide x 1500 pixels tall.
Do not use a poster for an event image.
The text on posters does not meet web accessibility requirements. Posters also do not translate well for event images when the event thumbnail images are small on a web page or when they are cropped.
Instead of a poster image, please use an 2000px by 1500px image from one of the Sources for an Event Image, listed below.
It must not be a copyright image. Do NOT just Google an image, as this may result in an image copyright violation when posting a Google-sourced image to the public campus calendar on Localist. See Sources for an Events Image, below.
All primary important content & composition should work well within the center 1500 x 1500 square of the photo.
Only secondary visual info should appear in the left and right 250px edges of the image. Here are some example 4:3 Event Images with the sides grayed out to show the center 1:1 image composition that is needed for Localist and in the BLUEview Network.
