Adding images, video and audio

Images, Video & Audio - improve your profile by adding some colour in the form of images - these display on your profile as an image gallery.  You can also add video  from YouTube or Vimeo, and audio too. See the sections below for more detail on how to do each of these:

ADDING IMAGES
To add images to your profile log in, go to My Account, My Content, My Images.

Click on Add an Image at the top of the page, add an image title and some text/description.  Click the Choose File button which will bring up a dialog box for you to choose an image from your computer, click 'Open' or 'Select' to choose the image.

Image Types & Sizes: the site will accept JPEG, GIF or PNG files. They must be at least 400 x 300 pixels in dimension, and it's recommended that each image is about 2MB to ensure a quick download.  The dimension restrictions mean that the images will always look good when viewed in your profile - it is a way of us maintaining the quality of the site and how it appears to viewers.  You may need to resize your image using an image editor such as Photoshop, Microsoft Picture Manager, Paint etc.

Add a Website Link so that people can click through from the image to your site or Creative Doncaster profile.

Make sure that the Publish in creative directory box is ticked so that any image actually appears on the site and in your profile.

Click on Image Categorisation and choose up to 3 categories, these help your image to come up when visitors search on the website. If appropriate you can also add an image location, and contact details. 

Once you have done this make sure you click on the Add Image button to upload it. If you get a blank screen you may have tried to upload an image that is too big - reduce the image size and start again.

If you have several images uploaded you can alter the order in which they appear in your profile by using the up and down arrows to the left of the list of images in My Images. Click on the arrows and drag to a new location.

You can remove an image by returning to My Images and clicking the red cross to the right of the image you want to remove.
