High-quality photography conveys a level of professionalism and polish befitting the dynamism of this university, and helps convey the strength of the Northeastern University brand with the power of visual communications. Photography on our websites and in our print communications should reflect the following university characteristics:
Keep these words in mind when choosing images. Each image helps show the story of Northeastern.
For print – 300dpi (JPG, TIFF, CMYK mode)
For Web – 72dpi (JPG, RGB mode)
For video – recommended minimum of 150dpi
A database of campus imagery, including students and faculty in a variety of environments is available. Full-time staff and faculty can access both our Image Repository and Image Gallery. They include high- and low-resolution photographs.
In the right corner of the Image Repository website, log in. Click Browse on left side. Type words related to the image search (for example: campus) and all choices will appear. To view the image larger, choose the photo from the initial light box. A separate window will appear listing headline, caption, and credit. Hover your cursor over the photo and a larger preview will appear. On the right side of the window, you can choose to download a thumbnail, low-resolution, or high-resolution version of the image.
External audiences, such as members of the news media, do not have access to the Image Repository. They may, however, download a selection of high- and low-resolution Northeastern photos from the Image Gallery.
The photographer’s name (photo credit) must appear either alongside the image or in the publication’s masthead. Photo credit is not required within video productions, assuming the photographer has signed the Photographer/Videographer contract.
