At the bottom of the left sidebar is a link to “Video Tutorials” that will allow you to watch video tutorials within WordPress.

Documents, Images and Video
The following are several important considerations when selecting and adding documents, images, and video to a website:
All images used must be owned by Texas A&M AgriLife or licensed for free commercial use. If a copyrighted image is used or an image is not attributed correctly, Texas A&M AgriLife is liable for copyright infringement. You can access and select from hundreds of AgriLife’s professional, high-quality images through the AgriLife Photoshelter.
Image and document files should be optimized for the web to enhance site loading speeds and image clarity. File sizes should be no more than 1 MB, and image files should be appropriately sized and cropped for their intended size on the webpage.
All images, documents, and videos posted on a website are expected to meet federal and state required accessibility guidelines as outlined on Texas A&M’s IT Accessibility website. Images and files saved as images are to have alt text, and videos are expected to have captions. The Texas A&M IT Accessibility website also has guidance on how to create accessible documents and PDFs.
All logos and color palettes should follow Texas A&M AgriLife’s brand guide.
