How many photos can we add to the platform in general? Is there a point (at 1,000 or 5,000 photos?) where those files will be too heavy and cause the platform to be slower?
There is no restriction to the number of photos that can be uploaded, but the individual image size is limited to 10 MB. The platform as a whole is unaffected by the number of images, but when you want to open a large image, the system may take some time to load it.
How can I upload images to the ‘XYZ’ page I created?
You can go to the page, and on the extreme right, there will be a tab - Admin Panel. Click on it and select Edit this page.
This will take you to the page editor, where there will be an option Insert Image. Using this, you can easily add any image you want.
What is the recommended size for Banner images/ Cover images?
All the pictures (banner photos on the home page, cover photos for events, chapters, etc.) are designed to be responsive. i.e., they automatically resize themselves to fit the screen you’re viewing it on. Images no longer get chopped off just cause you’re looking at it on mobile.
That being said, the pictures will look better if you stick to the following guidelines regarding their sizes.
Banner images on the home page: 3:1 aspect ratio (and at least 1350 px*450 px)
For chapters, events, stories: 4:1 aspect ratio (and at least 1200px * 300px)
Can I reorder the sliding banner pictures on the homepage?
The banner pictures on your homepage can be re-ordered by setting a Priority.1 will appear first, 2 will come after that, and so on...
You will find the field to set Priority at the bottom of the page while adding a banner picture. You can add banner pictures from Banner Pictures on the admin panel.
The banner pictures slide automatically every few seconds unless you hover on it.
Can we tag alumni on the images that we upload in the gallery, like we do on Facebook?
No. We do not have a feature to tag people in images you upload in the gallery.
