Publishing & managing media

In the CMS, documents and images are centrally managed – and then made available to pages and content modules. Although, in most cases, images are added via content modules when editing content.

To add new media navigate to Manage → Content → Media → Add media.

From here you can add Documents (PDFs, Word and Excel files.), and Images.

Note
Max image size is 6MB.

The recommendation is to upload as high-quality images as possible, and dimensions should be 2560 × 1708 pixels or greater. The CMS will then automatically crop the image to the correct size for different modules and optimize image size preserving the image quality.

If the image doesn't look good in the module you are using (focus is off), try editing the image's focal point, which by default is in the centre of the picture.

Image ratios for different modules:

Hero video, the perfect size for background video is 1920x816. Preferably it should not contain any text, and it should be cut so that it loops smoothly. Video needs to be loaded on Vimeo in order to work correctly (YouTube doesn't work).

PDF is the recommended file format for documents shared on our website, and you should always consider converting Word documents into PDF if possible. Excel is ok if the data needs to be presented in a spreadsheet (e.g. financial data).

Also, you should make the documents accessible, so that those follow the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines 2.1 requirements.
