How to add/change a cover image
By Russ Freeman, written 1362317516.
Adding a cover image is a great way of creating more impact for your portfolio. You've probably browsed a few portfolios and seen it already.
Add a cover image (or change an existing one)
If you would like to add a cover image (or change your current cover image to something else) hover over the image you want to change it to and select “Use as cover image” from the menu that appears.
You can also do this by viewing the image you want to use, and from the grey cog choose “Use as cover image”.
Remove a cover image
Unfortunately once you have a cover image you cannot completely remove it, but you can change it to something else.
Images which cannot be used
- Members only images
- Images marked as "adult"
Note: The ideal dimensions for a cover image are 900 pixels across and 350 pixels high, but any 900 pixels across image will be just fine as you will be prompted to crop it to the correct dimensions anyway.
Frequently asked questions
Q: Do I need to upload an image specifically for my cover image?
A: No, any 900 pixel wide image will do just fine but shooting specifically for a cover image is fun too :-)
