Home Page Banners

The YSM Office of Communications handles all technical aspects of editing and uploading banner imagery to a YSM website, please send high resolution files to ysm.editor@yale.edu and a staff member will assist you.

Content: The banner area of the home page is reserved for “action” images that are representative of the work done by the organization, or beautiful, detailed microscopy. Group photographs, collages, illustrations, and graphic design images are excluded from this area as a part of the YSM brand. Group photographs can be placed on your “About us” page and instructional design images can be placed on other relevant areas of the site.

Aspect Ratio:  Images taken for the home page banner need to be taken with the horizontal aspect ratio and right‐hand overlay in mind, including dead space on the top, right, and bottom of the full‐frame image. The “action” of the photograph needs to be happening to the left and middle of the photograph. Only 25% of the full‐frame image displays in the final rendering.
