Slideshow Process


Slideshows are used:

  • for conveying announcements/events and directing the visitor to more information.
  • for marketing some aspect of your program.
  • for showcasing achievements or work with links to more information.
  • to emphasize something you already have on the page.
  • sparingly. Don't just throw up pretty pictures.

Try to keep your slideshow to no more than five images. In today's world, people are looking for information quickly and may not wait for a slideshow to cycle through all the images to find the one they want.


When adding a slideshow to a page, you need to do the following in this order:


  1. Determine the purpose of the slideshow:
    • Is it to bring emphasis to certain programs?
    • Are you showing examples of the content on the page?
  2. Decide where you will display the slideshow?
    • Near the top?
    • Lower in content?
  3. Determine the size the images need to be.


  1. Select the images.
  2. Prepare the images.
    • Image adjustments (color, brightness, etc.)
    • Cropping
    • Sizing
  3. Upload the images.

  2. Add your images to the block and any overlay text (optional).
  3. Send your block through workflow.
