Everything you need to know about images
Smaller image sizes = faster page loads = better page rankings.
Global asset bank
A global asset bank has been added to the media library. Use the global asset bank when your content needs a general image. If a new image is required, this must be:
Campus images are available to use in the Global Asset Bank folder - Please don't add additional images of campus to the media library ANYWHERE.
All staff images must be approved for use by the Digital team or Creative team. Searching by name should present any images already available for use within the media library. Please don't upload images of staff at any time without permission to do so.
All logos must be approved for use by Marketing Managers, Service Leads or the Creative team and uploaded to the Global Asset Bank by the Digital team. Please don't upload additional logos to the media library - this will help us to avoid duplications.
All logos should be named as such and include the word ‘logo’. This means they can easily be identified in the media library.
What if I'd like to use an image but I want to know if it's already in use?
To avoid overuse of images - particularly those with people in - you can check the number of times it has already been used by clicking on the folder it's housed within.
Can I upload images to the media library?
NO - general images shouldn't be uploaded to the media library.
Only images approved for use by the Creative team should be added to the Global Asset Bank and even then, only by the Digital team. You may upload images if they are related to editorial content or research centres - see below.
If you are permitted to upload images for your content, you must always add an alt tag. See the accessibility checklist for more information.
