Image Guidelines – Thumbnail Cards

Image Size & Resolution

  • Thumbnail card image size should be a minimum of 720px x 405px (16:9 ratio)
  • Resolution should be 72dpi
  • Accepted file formats are .png (non-transparent) and .jpg

Other Considerations

  • If using a .png, ensure that the image doesn’t have a transparent background.
  • Light coloured images should be avoided is there is a text overlay. Lighter images with a white text overlay could cause contrast accessibility issues.
  • Avoid using text in your image.
