CHECKLIST & SOP
Real Men Real Style
- Dimensions – 745 x 180 px
- Save Quality – 7
- Photos Used should be copyright-free, or faces invisible/unrecognizable
- Photos used MUST be sharp and High Quality
- Use an Academic angle for featured images. It works in most cases because featured images on the site are basically banners with no text title. Using an academic image describes the content without the need for additional text. Using other angles can work as well but always keep in mind that the image should be telling of what the article and video is about without the need for copy.
- Text – Use copy sparingly. Copy should serve as title, since only the image is uploaded to the RMRS site, unlike in YouTube. Like in thumbnails, make sure to use 5 WORDS MAX.
- Fonts – Use the appropriate fonts according to hierarchy and word length. Refer to stylesheet for our general font list.
- Background color – ALWAYS use a light gray background in featured images. This is because using bright and vivid colors doesn’t look good on the website. Using a neutral background such as light gray will blend it well with the site’s color palette.
