Uploading Media for a Longform
Any images, audio, or videos you want to use in your longform must be uploaded to the WCMS and saved to the Media folder.
Use these guidelines when uploading images:
Story banner: 1200px : 900px (size: <150kB)
*If using video, fallback still image should be same as first frame of video loop
Video banner: 1200px : 900px (size: <4mb)
*Both .mp4 and .webm formats are required to accomodate all browsers
Parallax in-line banner: 3072px : 1536px (size: <225kB)
Photo essay: see the Web Style Guide.
Compression/saving information can be found on the Web Style Guide.
When saving images to the WCMS, be sure to clean up file names, removing any spaces, underscores, extraneous numbers/dates. All text should be lower case and use dashes instead of spaces or underscores. Make sure your file extension (.jpg, .mp4, etc.) remains in the name.
