Website and Social Media Images
One strong image is required for your production for display on our website. The image is displayed alongside the full details of your show and will render depending on the device the web visitor is using so must not contain any text.
We have put the following information together to help you:
|Size:||Ideal 3840 * 2560 pixels
Always provide largest format image file available
Hint: You can check the size of your image as follows:
PC Right click on the image file and select Properties
Mac Press Option while clicking on the image file, then select Get Info
|Shape||Our website will use the image in landscape when viewed on a desktop PC and square when viewed on a mobile device. This is in a similar way to Facebook images compared to Instagram images.
Images on the social media are square as well as landscape
Landscape & Portrait shots are fine, but need to be framed to allow for cropping.
|Cropping||Depending on the device being used to view our website your image may be cropped, please consider this when composing your image.|
|Licence||Please be aware that it is your responsibility to check licence requirements for any images used to promote your show.|
|File Format||The preferred image format is JPEG.|
|Stock Images||If we do not have an image for your event when tickets go on sale we will use one of our stock images, but this can be changed as soon as you provide us with an image.|
|Production Shots||Images for your show which feature people in costume is the best way to attract interest in your show. We would recommend and schedule a photo shoot. This could be done on the last day of your previous performance while at the theatre (between matinee and evening shows) or you could arrange a separate photo shoot.|
|Delivery||Please deliver files electronically either via email attachments or using a large file transfer service such as “we transfer”.|
