Before capturing a photographic moment on university grounds, at a university event or of a UofL person, consider if a release/consent form is required, should you plan to use that photograph in marketing or publications (print or digital).

Large file sizes increase the page load time. We recommend resizing images and optimizing them for web usage if they are larger than 600px wide (unless the image will be the whole width of the page). The largest size an image will display in LibGuides is 1170px and this is when it goes the whole width of the page.
The Creative Cloud suite includes access to Photoshop. In Photoshop,

Set the file format and quality (5 or 6 works well). Photoshop will show you an image to the sizing options so you can preview the image quality.
Then click the Export button.
