Various web boards around campus will have different dimensions. To find the exact dimensions navigate to https://browsersize.com/. Look at the top right for the screen size and use those dimensions as a starting point.

 


Creating a Graphic for a Web Board

For a graphic to fill the entire board, the file should be set up to match the dimensions found using the browser size tool. This tool will illustrate the size of a webboard. Upon navigating to the website by clicking on the link above, please look to the right of the “setmy.browsersize.com” logo to see the size of the webboard. We recommend you make this the size of your image.

 

 

Create the graphic in an image processing application such as photoshop, flatten all layers, and then save the file.  Save for Web as a bmp, .gif, .jpg, or .png. Ensure the file size is under 30MB, and image resolution is lower than 1500 pixels x 1500 pixels.
