Digital Image Training

Training Aims

This training will demonstrate the basic principles of digital image editing, with a focus on how to edit images for the University website such as header images, thumbnails and in-page images.

The aim of this training is to ensure that users follow the below principles in order to ensure our website remains performant and professional:

  • Images are correctly re-sized so that file size is minimal but quality is optimised
  • The correct image types are being used e.g. GIFs, JPEGs and PNG

Learning Outcomes 

 By the end of this session, users should be able to:

  • Define and understand pixels, resolution and colour modes
  • Create cropped and re-sized images
  • Edit images using common image retouching tools and filters
  • Recognise key dimensions for images on the website e.g. header images
  • Create saved images for the web / digital channels e.g. social media

This training will demonstrate how to use Photoshop to edit imagery however we will also cover the use of freely accessible web-based image editing tools for those who don't have access to Photoshop.

Who should attend this training?

This training is open to all web content editors who would like a basic understanding of how to edit and optimise images for Sitecore. Those who already have a good understaning of Photoshop or other image editing tools should not attend this training.

Places are limited to 12 people per session.
