Image Guidelines

If you are submitting an image for the Chapel pre-service announcements, it would be best if it is in a 1920×1080 (1080p) resolution. Any slide or image must be in landscape (widescreen) format. Keep in mind, we do not use PowerPoint to project announcements. Images (JPEG, PNG) are the best format.
