Uploading a photo from your computer
It's easy to add a photo or logo which is stored on your computer's hard drive as an image file:
1. Click on the "Browse" link on the photo or logo submission box.
2. Locate and select the image you want to upload from your hard drive.
3. Click on "Add Photo."
Repeat these steps if you want to upload your company logo.
You may delete a photo by clicking on delete, next to the file name.
Click "Done" when you have finished adding your photo or logo. This will bring you back to the item submission page. You should then see the titles of the photo / logo under the Upload link.
If you want to change the photo once you've submitted your public profile, go to your 'My Public Profile' page and edit from there.
Requirements for uploading your images and logos
All images and logos submitted must be:
JPEG, GIF or PNG file format
File size less than 2 MB
Named properly - use only the 26 letters of the alphabet, the 10 digits and a period ( . ).
Do not use the following or anything similar: $ # & / \| @ % * ( )
The online upload will automatically resize photos to 170 pixels wide or 170 pixels tall, which ever suits the picture best. (If the image is taller than it is wide, it will be 170 pixels high, if it is wider than it is tall, it will be 170 pixels wide.)
This means you don't need to crop your images to fit the space on the site. Just make sure the image is cropped as you want it, and the file size is less than 2MB, then upload it. The web site will do the rest.
The online upload will automatically resize logos to 80 pixels wide or 80 pixels tall, whichever suits the image best.
If you want to get the very best results, it can be worth manipulating your images in an image editing program like Adobe Photoshop. These let you control the cropping, sharpness and color of the image. Warning: be sure to save your images as high quality JPEGs. Low quality JPEGs tend to look blurry with a loss of accurate colour.
