Create a Rendition Policy

A rendition policy enables you to configure rules and conditions for image renditions that are needed for particular channels. You must be a content administrator to create and manage rendition policies.

To create a rendition policy:

  1. Sign in as a content administrator in your browser and click Content under Administration in the left navigation menu.
  2. Choose Rendition Policies from the drop-down list, and then click Create.
  3. Enter a name for the rendition policy.


    The API Name is generated automatically based on the rendition policy name you entered, or you can overwrite the auto-generated name. You would use the API name to invoke the rendition policy when using REST API calls.
  4. Enter an optional description explaining what the rendition policy is used for.
  5. In the Input Format box, select one or more image formats to which you want to apply this policy. To enable support for all current and forthcoming media types, select All Supported Image Types.
  6. Select the Output Format (the resulting image format) you want for the automatically created rendition.
  7. Select the Image Quality you want for the automatically created rendition.
  8. Select the Transformation you want to apply to the automatically created rendition:
    • Scale to Height, and enter the height to which you want to scale
    • Scale to Width, and enter the width to which you want to scale
    • Crop to Center - By Aspect Ratio, and enter the aspect ratio to which you want to crop
    • Crop to Center - By Dimension, and enter the dimension to which you want to crop
  9. When you're done, click Save.

When the rendition policy is finalized, you must apply it to one or more digital asset types.
