To add a photo to your campaign, go to the home page and click GUIDE (under the Donate Now button) and then "Add team photo and description". From there, click on the Camera icon on the default picture, then upload the desired image. The recommended picture dimension is 400 by 300 pixels (4:3 aspect ratio).
If your photo appears zoomed in, you will need to edit the photo to be the correct size. These instructions will allow you to edit the photo yourself:
- Go to www.pixlr.com/e and select 'Create New'.
- Choose the 12mpx 4:3 option, then click 'Create'
Now go to the top of the page and select 'Page', then 'Set Page Size'
- The center square is already selected so that your image is centered within the new canvas, so now you just need to set the width to 400/300 is the height and click "Apply".
Back at the top, select 'Layer', then 'Add Image As Layer'.
Notice the checkered area. This is the size your photo needs to fit in. You may notice once you upload your photo, that it is way too large. You should see a blue outline with square boxes in the corners. You may have to zoom in or out to locate the blue outline. Click and hold on one of the corners, dragging your photo into the checkered area.
Back at the top select 'File', then 'Save'. This window will appear:
For best quality, choose PNG, then click 'Save As' and it will give you the opportunity to name your file and where on your computer you want it saved.
If you are having trouble, you are always welcome to send the photo to us via email at email@example.com and we will happily edit and upload the photo for you!
Only the fundraising coordinator (the person who created the online campaign page) or a member of the LCF Fundraising Team can add or modify the campaign photo.
