Media management in Brand Toolbox

All media within the site first needs to be loaded into the ‘Media’ section.

Understanding image types

It is very important to fully understand the different types of imagery used across the site.

For more information on the different types, go to Understanding image types.

Note: When uploading media to the Media library, remember to adhere to the filenaming conventions below.

Filenaming

In the filenames and image names that you upload to the Media section, there should be:

No SLASHES or QUOTES
No # & % + * = @ ~ ^ $
No < > ( ) [ ] { } : ; ? !
No Other Unusual Characters

Ensure a consistent filenaming convention is applied, ie:

Guideline display images should use a hyphen between words:
