How to Upload Images in DNN CMS

Quick Tips to Add Images to Your DotNetNuke Website

Most business owners would just do anything to boost their organic rankings, increase customer traffic and convert more leads.  While fresh content, meta tags and keywords work wonders to optimize your site for the major search engines, there are often few factors that are overlooked, but contributes to the site’s rankings. Including high quality images to your website is one effective means that can help you to improve the user experience and also enhance the SEO.

DotNetNuke is one of the best CMS that is used by organizations to develop their websites. It is extremely flexible and easy to use and also offers rich features that can be fully integrated into the website. The platform offers various modules and this allows business owners to easily customize their websites. Adding images are important for your website, but I have come across several DotNetNuke developers who do not understand how to prepare images before uploading them to the site. Here in this blog, I will give you a quick overview of the entire process.

The image formats: If you have selected a DNN development company to create your website then the designers can help you to add perfect images on your site. There are usually two main image files and they are the JPEGs and GIFs. These formats help to compress the file size of an image and this helps with smooth transitions. You can convert the images in any of the desired format and save them, which will ensure that the pages download in the quickest time. While adding images on a page, consider its dimension, file size, number of images and the total file size so that it can be kept to the minimum.

Dimensions of the images:  Many DotNetNuke developers have problems determining the size of the images. The image dimensions should always be determined according to their use, where they are going to be placed and how much screen space you want them to cover. A corporate logo should always be a small one and a location map should be legible where the small features can be identified.

Optimize the image: Your DNN website should be properly optimized so that it becomes more visible to the audience. Once the dimensions are decided for your image, you can compress it to a suitable size using an image editor. Now preview the image and adjust the settings and check how long it will take to download. Create the best optimized image and change the setting before using it.

Following the above discussed tips before adding an image to your DNN website will ensure that the images are easy to view, take less time to download and optimize the website for enhanced visibility to the audience.
