Because banner images respond in both size and appearance across different size devices, with a variety of text overlays, Photoshop templates are required to create banner photos.
Custom banner images
The University Web & Design team happily creates and updates all banner photos on the W&M website. Departments that would like to feature a custom set of banners for their websites may share original, uncropped images to [[creative]] for review. Images must be high resolution (a minimum of 2000 pixels wide and 72 dpi). We will crop the images and apply them to your folder, and you will have the ability to change the banner size if you'd like.
To change the banner size, edit the folder and select a size (Inherit, Small or Medium) from the Banner Photo Size dropdown. The size you choose will apply to the entire folder by default (if you select medium, all of the pages within that folder will have medium banners). There is also the option of having a large, high-impact visual for your banner image on a single page, called a hero image. If you're interested in exploring this option for a page, please email [[creative]].
