If you're having trouble logging in to Ektron to edit the site remember you can do so by using the "Ektron Login" link in the footer of the site. And then clicking on "Ektron Workarea," in the same place, after the page reloads. Please ensure you are on the "stage" version of the site and not the "production" version, which is only available when connected to the Pitt computer network.
Please refrain from uploading large images directly from your camera to the website. If your image has a file size of over 1 MB or is over 800 pixels tall or wide, please resize it before uploading it to the image library. If you do not have an image editing program on your computer, websites like
PicMonkey will allow you to resize and crop your image for free without needing to create an account.
