Wide images span the full width of the content area of a page and always appear at the top of the page. If there is a content component on the page, the content component's "Title Field" will be displayed as a H1 page title above the wide image.The wide photo will work on a one column or two column page. On a two column page, the two columns will start below the wide photo.
- You will first need to upload an original image (the uncropped image) and 715 x 390 landscape cropped image into Tridion.
- In your Building Blocks folder, open a new component and select the "About the Image"schema from the drop down menu. You will upload both images into this component. Save & Close.
- In your Root folder, open the page where you want to insert this image.
- When inserting the "About the Image" component on the page, select "Wide Image" from the template drop down menu. Save & close your page and publish! Note If the image does not fit in the 715 x 390 pixel space on the page (or have the same aspect ratio) Tridion will automatically crop the image to fit in the space.
