Images - Sizing

How Wide should your image size be?

In a General Document using a standard narrow navigation (most common)

Image width for an image that takes up the FULL content area width: 

  • Max 607 pixels wide.
  • uses a "Related Image" element (we'll talk about this later).

Image width for an image that takes up HALF the content area width: 

  • Around 276 pixels wide
  • An image this size is desirable when you want text to align beside it, and you'll place that image in an "Image with Content" element (We'll talk about Image with Content later too!).

Please Note:  As you can see, you no longer need to create a border for any images.  One less step!
