a series of these components. The component can also be placed in
the right sidebar.
Name: Provide the person's full name, in normal order;
e.g. 'Jane Doe.' To include their degrees, use standard
abbreviations (e.g. PhD) and separate with commas. (This
information will be displayed in bold text, and linked if a URL is

the buttons that appear toward the bottom of the dialogue box.

replace it with a different one, click the Clear button
adjacent to the crop/rotate tools.
- Verify that the image is large enough for the space on the page
you are filling; if an image is too small it will be stretched and
thus appear pixelated or blurry on the page.
- While basic image crop and rotation tools are available within
the component, for best results use an external image editor such
as Adobe Photoshop prior to upload.
