Image Specifications

Curious what dimensions to crop your photo? Find them here.

Editors

Learn about available external image editors to crop and resize your images before uploading to Cascade. Additional edits can also be made using the built-in image editor

File Types

We recommend you save your image files as .jpg for all photos and for graphics without a transparency. For graphics with transparency, we recommend .png.

File Sizes

Avoid uploading images larger than required as that will place an unnecessary burden on the Cascade databases and your users when they load the page.
