Add or Edit a Photo
The network photo uploader allows you to add multiple photos at a time. The following formats are supported: .jpg, .png and .gif.
To add a photo, go to the Photo page and click the + sign. From here, you can select a photo or multiple photos to upload from your computer. This + button will appear on all photos and the photos listing page.
Once you upload the photo, you can add a title and caption. You’ll also be able to delete, rotate and apply tags if you’d like. By default, we’ll generate a link for your new photos, but you will have the option to change the URL to something else.
When you’re done making changes, click the “Publish” button. After you publish the photo, you’ll be brought to the photos listing page where you can see all the photos.
After uploading a photo to your website, you can always go back and edit it. You can rotate the photo, add or edit the tags you’ve given it, change the title, description, location, category and URL. To edit a photo you’ve uploaded, head to that photo’s detail page. At the top, you’ll see the pencil icon. Simply click it to access the edit options. Here you can make any or all of these changes to your photo. Once you’ve made your changes, click “Update” to save the changes. You can also click “Cancel” to leave the photo the way it was.
With your social website, you can create multiple instances (or copies) of the Photo feature. Each instance has its own settings, so the settings for one instance can be different from another instance.
For example, you can have one photos instance that allows members to contribute photos and another instance that allows only administrators to contribute photos. If you have an event, you can have an instance that only shows the official event photos and another instance that shows the photos that were taken by members or those who attended the event.
This new instance can have different privacy settings and a custom URL. You can even change the contributor, view and comment settings so that it’s different from other photo instances on your network. You can determine what kind of layout you’d like your Photos feature instance to have. You can choose from a single-column, two-column or three-column layout. Two-column layouts have a further customization setting of selecting a pixel width for your side column of 240, 300 or 360 pixels. This is a great way to add ads and sidebar content to all pages in this particular Photos feature instance.
When you join the website, you have the option to upload a profile photo during the sign up process. If you choose to add one later, go to your My Page by clicking on your name in the top network bar. Then click on the pencil icon at the top of your page.
This will take you to your Profile Settings page. From here, you can click on the trash can icon to delete your profile photo. Doing this alone will set your profile photo back to the network-provided default profile photo.
Click on the camera icon or the “Profile Photo” text to upload a new photo from your computer.
When you upload a new photo, the old one will be deleted.
Once you’ve selected your new profile photo, scroll down and click “Save” to confirm the change!
People sometimes ask us: What’s the best size for a profile picture image? Just about any image will work as long as it is a GIF, JPG or PNG image that is under 10 MB in size. We recommend square images that are no larger than 183×183 pixels. Anything larger will be compressed/resized to fit that space.
