The purpose of this page is to give you some banners and icon graphics to choose from when adding new pages, new sermons and new calendar events. Try using the provided graphics FIRST before resorting to adding your own images. Please contact Melanie Beaudoin to create new icons and banners for you to stay within the BRAND.
When adding photos outside of these below, keep in mind the colour scheme (red, blue, purple, gold) as well as the size of the photos. Full width banners, use a width of at least 1200 pixels is good, 1400 would be better, 1500 is the max you should do. The larger the photos, the slower the site will become. If possible, use a photo saving software to compress your jpg, gif and png files. You can resize huge photos inside of squarespace. After uploading image, click on edit or the pencil, then resize or crop. You can also move the small circle in the middle of your photo after upload to change how the photo views in the layout (it uses the circle as your centre) which is important for how it shows up in banners. Do to this site being mobile friendly (responsive) the full width banners will be cropped differently for smart phones and iPads than for desktop and laptop computer screens, which is why it's useful to have the option of being able to choose your centre for each image.
To keep the site load time quick, we want to save photos at the size they are needed, as well as proper compression (if able to). If the image is being used on the body area of the page, it does not need to be larger than 1000 pixels wide (full width banner sizes above). If using for events photo, 800, even 500 px wide would be appropriate. In photoshop, jpgs are saved for web using the medium or high jpg compression settings. Rule: If it doesn't look good, don't do it! The graphic designer may replace your image if it doesn't match with the branding colours or style.
