Images on the web should always 

  • be consistent with the University's brand standards for photography
  • be high resolution—never blurry or pixelated
  • make sense in the context of the page and the website
  • have text no smaller than 36pt
  • if the image is clickable, there should be an indicator that it is clickable, such as a triangle arrow or a button.  Please refer to the documentation on button style.
