Brand New VisitLancashire.com

Our new website supports hi –res photography, in fact the design of the site is all about showing off the best of Lancashire with fantastic imagery. This means the image size is significantly bigger than ever before.

However, all existing photography cannot be used on the new site, unless it meets the new photography criteria - see 'Getting your page ready' below.

Copy can be transferred from your current page; however, this is a great opportunity for you to create some fresh content - by updating the quality of photography and updating copy, this will lead to an improved visitor experience and improve Search Engine Optimisation.

Getting your page ready

The new visitLancashire.com will showcase the best of Lancashire through the fantastic images of Lancashire and your business.

Today, successful websites rely on the quality and impact of the imagery and we’re making sure that Lancashire stays ahead of its competitors. Our new website will only support high resolution images, so we cannot use lower resolution images.

If you have already submitted your new images to us, we are currently in the process of uploading all new content into the new site.

If you didn't submit photography for the new website a default placeholder image of Lancashire will be used on your webpage when the site goes live.

What is the photo quality criteria?

• Landscape images only
• Images must be bright and well-lit
• No mobile phone photos
• Images must be in sharp focus
• Jpeg format only
• Minimum size 1220x713 pixels

What about if I have existing images?

If you have images that already fit our criteria (this is likely to apply if you already have professional photography) and are in landscape format, you still need to update your selection.

Even if your photography meets our technical criteria, images date. If your images have not been replaced within the last year, we would strongly encourage you to take this opportunity to refresh them.

Who has editorial control?

To maximise the potential of the new website we will retain editorial control. If we don’t feel images supplied showcase your business in the best way, we will help advise on replacing them.

How are we monitoring quality control?

If the above quality guidelines are followed, our new photo database will accept the images. But if they do not they will be rejected and we’ll have to re-request. Our website database doesn’t enable us to publish lower resolution images.

*IMPORTANT NOTE: None of the existing imagery will be carried over to the new website.  Therefore, images will need to be re-uploaded.  If you submitted images to us for the new site these will be in place when the site goes live.  If you didn't a placeholder default image of Lancashire will be used.
