I just started making an image template for articles but found different aspect ration between two post types. Do we know why the ratio is different? And can I set the Event image specs to the same ratio as the Article image specs?
Article = 1440 x 640
Event = 600 x 300
Firstly sorry for the delayed response here.
Secondly thanks for highlighting the difference.
I can only imagine the specs are different to cater for the different size of the display widgets.
The sizes are minimum to keep definition. But I get that the ratios are different.
We do have a style guide to assist on assets:
I am roping in our designer
@Silviu for any input.
I must say as
@Alistair FIeld mentioned that we just recommend the best sizes to ensure the best display on different screen sizes, but if I am not mistaken, you can upload any image size and it will be cropped accordingly to match the aspect ratio for Events or Articles.
I hope this helps.
I was just trying to be more efficient making graphics. If I set a single template for article thumb/header graphics, I could use the same template for all articles if the aspect ratio was the same. As it is not, I have to refactor the elements in the graphics to fit in different aspect ratios.
Multiple templates it is then.
Thank you for your response!
I am just revisiting this topic with a current example. I had to remake this image 3 times to get it to fit properly in the activity feed and the feature articles section. The guess work is not my favorite feature.
