Compress images: Be sure to reduce the file size of images to help improve page load time. Tools to do this include: Tiny png, ImageOptim, or compressor.io
Name your files: This will improve accessibility and seo. Be descriptive and fill in alt text field to help discoverability. Use hyphens to separate words in the file name instead of spaces to improve its readability.
Add files to Drive: Add both the working files and the exports to Google Drive so other staff can find and use them.
Avoid putting text in images: Text is images can not be read by screen readers, can't be translated to other languages, and text will be too small on mobile devices. If you must put text in images, make sure there is enough contrast between the text color and the background and add the text as alt text.

Example of a Sub-Theme
This theme is closely linked to our strategic initiatives, theory of change and movement activities housed at the Mozilla Foundation. We have chosen to use the term AI (Artificial Intelligence) because it is a term that resonates with a broad audience, is used extensively by industry and policymakers, and is currently at the center of critical debate about the future of technology. Mozilla is working towards what we call trustworthy AI and we are defining it as AI that is demonstrably worthy of trust.
