When images are uploaded into the WCMS for use on a website, there are three steps that can be difficult to remember and technically complicated to complete:
- Finding the correct pixel dimensions for the framework feature
- Cropping and resizing the photo
- Compressing the photo to minimize its file size
OVPUE IT has released its IU Web Framework Images processing tool to help with all three of these steps and eliminate the requirement to learn and use photoshop and separate compression tools when working with website images.
The OVPUE Framework Images Processing tool allows you to upload an image, choose a new file name, and then crop it to the correct shape and size for any of the approved Framework image applications (like banners, profile photos, or image essay chunks). Once you’re done, just click “Download” and the images you’ve created are automatically compressed and downloaded with custom filenames that help you find the correct image in the WCMS.
The new tool is linked from the OVPUE IT website’s Web Communications tab for easy findability next time you need to upload an image into the WCMS.
