Image shapes and sizes (Berkeley Brand)

The Berkeley Brand guidelines provide standard image sizes for Brand components such as Hero, Photo Thumbnail, and Promo widgets....

Hero Widget

Hero image layouts allow site builders to add full-width images with text (and optional videos and links) across the top of your home page or landing pages. The styles and layouts match the new design of the Berkeley homepage and News website.

Edit photos and files from the dashboard

From your admin menu and dashboard, you can edit the default alt and title text of image files, change the names of files, replace a file with a new version, and crop an image.

To perform any of these actions, navigate to your "Files" tab by hovering over your admin menu, or clicking on your dashboard in the upper left corner of your site.

Add Attachments

Summary

Attachments like PDF, Word, Excel, and Powerpoint documents can be added to Open Berkeley sites as downloadable links.

Add a Spotlight (slideshow)

Overview

Spotlights are photo slideshows that contain images overlaid with optional titles and descriptions. You can link them to pages on your site, or to external webpages.
