Template 4 image types

Information on image sizes for Template 3 Cascade sites is available through University Systems.

Compressing image files

Compressing your image file helps it load faster. Often photo software adds hidden information to the file--like metadata--which can bloat the size of the file.

After cropping, please compress your images before uploading to Cascade. We recommend using TinyJPG, a free web-based tool that reduces the overall size of your image files without sacrificing image quality.
