A powerful image can be a great asset to your latest news. This is why our newsrooms contain a media library, allow you to add a media kit, and to illustrate your releases with media files such as photos and videos.

To make sure you get the best out of these features, having the right images with the right proportions is key. Whether you'd like to share images on your release or feature them with a social media post linked to your latest campaign, follow these simple size guidelines to make sure they are sized and cropped properly. Another valid tip is to always use high-resolution JPG or PNG images.

Featuring images in your campaign:

Our campaign editor gives you the option of resizing your images once they are uploaded onto the draft. Although it is not possible to customise the images' dimensions or to crop them, you can choose amongst three different display settings.Β 

To select either one of the options, once you choose the images, click on one of the three icons on top of your gallery:

  1. Large icons:

2. Medium icons:

3. Thumbnails:

Single media itemΒ 

If you'd like to highlight a specific image in your campaign, you can choose the option of adding a single media item. You will also be given three display options, which you can select by clicking on one of the rectangular icons above your photo:

This image will be the "cover photo" of your release when you share it on your newsroom and/or social media. Make sure that the photo is high resolution and that the dimensions are 700 x 500 pixels.Β 

Why? Because the image gets automatically cropped in that format once it is uploaded as your featured photo. Following this size will ensure that if you have an object or person in the photo, for instance, that they will actually be displayed in the correct placement. See the photo below for an example of how a feature image looks like:

There you go!
