Image Requirements

CVAD Image Requirements

Files exceeding 700KB should be compressed or emailed to The submitter must clear all images in advance for permission or copyright considerations and meet the requirements for image file size (weight in kilobytes) and dimensions (inches or pixels) described on this page. Marketing reserves the right to edit images to comply with our image requirements and university guidelines.

Image File Size Matters: Please follow the Upload Images instructions to compress your image to meet the 700KB limit.

Important Note: Your request may be delayed if you send only a rasterized, flattened file. Please send the vector file version, e.g., the native files of the art, name of the fonts used, and text on the photo in a Word document or include it in the text field of your submission. Sending only a rasterized image without the separate text may delay your request until you send it. Examples of raster image file types are BMP, TIFF, GIF and JPG files.

Multiple images: If you have more than two images, email them to following the file size and dimensions specifications on this page.

Use of All Capital Letters: This is YELLING. Please avoid this in your designs and other images. It is seen as yelling at sighted and visually impaired readers. People who are blind and using a screen reader also hear it as yelling. This does not apply to acronyms.

Digital Screens in the Art Building

Required size: 1920w px x 935h px, 72 dpi; 8.5" x 11" posters will not be considered; .jpgs or .pngs only.

Use few words; this is like a billboard, and your message only gets a drive-by.

The video must have open captions of the audio portions and a visual description. To meet ADA requirements, an open-captioned transcript and a Word document with visual descriptions are required. Under Title II, publicly available videos for entertainment or informational purposes must be accessible to individuals with disabilities. In addition to the video file, the following elements are necessary for a successful upload: 1) a title (no more than 100 characters), 2) a general description paragraph about what viewers can expect in each video, and 3) a visual description paragraph for the blind (2 & 3 combined cannot exceed 5,000 characters).

Note: Did you know? On average, videos with captions increase in watch time compared to videos that don’t have them. Adding captions to your videos expands your reach to a wider audience, allowing more viewers to access and enjoy your content, from those who are deaf or hard of hearing to those who prefer to watch with no or low volume.
