Tips on choosing photos:

  • Choose a photo that works well in this horizontal format.
  • Make sure photos of people are flattering. For example, find photos where the lighting flatters skin tone, where individuals aren't squinting, etc.
  • Make sure your photo reflects what you want to communicate, and be sure to update it every 2-4 years.
  • Need help finding images? The Office of College Communications can help. Submit a project request for some photos.
