News/Feature Thumbnails

News stories and features use square thumbnails.

Most news stories and features use photosets to display related photography. News stories and features require square thumbnails for their listing pages (here's an example).

If you do not have photo editing software available to you, try one of these image editors.

Step 1: Create and upload a square thumbnail
  1. Crop your thumbnail image to 100 x 100 pixels or 200 x 200 pixels (required for W&M News) and save. We recommend .jpg for all photos and for graphics without a transparency. For graphics with transparency, we recommend .png. To simplify your upload process, save your image with a name using no spaces that is all lowercase.
  2. In Cascade, navigate to the appropriate images folder and upload your image.
Step 2: Link the thumbnail photo to the news story or feature page
  1. Edit the news story or feature page
  2. Under the "Thumbnail Images" heading, select Choose File to select the image and click Choose.
  3. To save, select Preview Draft and then Submit >> Check Content & Submit.
