Best Practices for Using Images

The LiveWhale Event calendar allows you to upload and use images with your events. These images could be stock images or images specific to your event. 

  • All images should be 546 pixels wide by 404 pixels high.
  • Use web-friendly images: The image should be saved as a JPG (.jpg, .jpeg)
  • Save your image with a name that does not contain spaces. Use hyphens (-) to separate words. For example, Dining-Hall.jpg
  • Include people in your images - an empty room isn't going to draw the attention of your audience

Don't Steal Things

If you are adding an image to your event, make sure you have all of the rights and permissions to use the image. Images pulled from the web through search engines or from news sources should not be used unless you have explicit written permission.
