Adding banner and profile pictures

Adding banner and profile pictures

Adding or changing a banner image

The banner image is the picture shown at the top of your page. The name of your page is shown in white on top of the banner image, so a partly transparent block of grey is automatically placed over the top of the banner image to make it easier to read your page name. When you create a new page the banner image is shown in white, making the partly transparent block of grey more visible.

  1. Log in to Izele and go to the page that you manage and want to change the banner image.
  2. There should be a change image icon in the top left hand corner of the banner image space. When you point at the icon a message saying “Change the page banner” should appear.
  3. Click on the change image icon to open the “Change page banner” dialog box. Follow the instructions to upload an image or drag and drop the file.
  4. The image should load and be displayed in the “Change page banner” dialog box.
  5. The page banner is long and thin and so you need to choose an image that either has similar dimensions or can be cropped to have the right dimensions.
  6. If the image already has the correct dimensions, click on the “Save image” button.
  7. If the image does not have the correction dimensions then click on the “Crop image” button. The image should now be greyed out, apart from a rectangle near the top of the image that has four white squares at its corners. You can move this rectangle around the image and change its size by dragging and dropping the white squares. When you are happy with where the rectangle is placed, click on “Save image” and the area you have selected will become your banner image.
  8. Izele should return to your page and show your new banner image. If you want to change the picture then just go through the steps above with a new image.

Adding or changing a profile picture

The profile picture is shown next to the page name and also appears throughout the Izele website whenever your page is listed. When you create a page Izele adds the default profile picture. Page managers for conservation area and organisations pages will probably want to use their logos as the profile picture.

  1. Log in to Izele and go to the page that you manage and want to change the profile picture.
  2. There should be a change image icon in the top left hand corner of the profile picture space. When you point at the icon a message saying “Change the profile picture” should appear.
  3. Click on the change image icon to open the “Change profile picture” dialog box. Follow the instructions to upload an image or drag and drop the file.
  4. The image should load and be displayed in the “Change profile picture” dialog box.
  5. The profile picture is square and so you need to choose an image that either has similar dimensions or can be cropped to have the right dimensions.
  6. If the image already has the correct dimensions, click on the “Save image” button.
  7. If the image does not have the correction dimensions then click on the “Crop image” button. The image should now be greyed out, apart from a square near the centre of the image that has four white squares at its corners. You can move this square around the image and change its size by dragging and dropping the white squares. When you are happy with where the square is placed, click on “Save image” and the area you have selected will become your profile picture.
  8. Izele should return to your page and show your new profile picture. If you want to change the picture then just go through the steps above with a new image.
