How to Add or Replace Photos

Instructions: Quick Links:


Replacing an Existing Photo on a Page

Login, and go to the page with the photo you want to replace. Click the "Edit" tab and scroll to the bottom of the page to find "File Attachments". Using "Attach new file", upload the new photo from your computer. Once it has been uploaded, un-check "List." Note the exact name of the image file, such as "newphoto.jpg". Now, scroll up to the "Body" section and find the reference to the old photo, such as "oldphoto.jpg". It may appear in two places - once for the thumbnail and once for the enlargement. Replace "oldphoto.jpg" with "newphoto.jpg" and Save.

Notes:
1. In the "File Attachments" section, the "Description" by default will be the name of the image file you uploaded, such as "newphoto.jpg". This can be edited, but editing it has no effect. It is only used for display purposes when "List" is checked. The actual name of the file on the SKEA website is shown under the Description box, for example: "skea.org/sites/default/files/newphoto.jpg" This tells you the name you must use for the HTML in the Body section.

2. If you upload a new photo that has exactly the same name as an existing photo, a new name will be assigned to the new photo. For example, if you upload "oldphoto.jpg", and there is already a file with that name, the system may rename the new photo to "oldphoto-1.jpg".


Adding a Photo to the Slideshow on the Front Page


Add a new photo to one of the three frames in the front-page slideshow.

Important! These photos must be cropped ahead of time to be SQUARE (i.e., the width and height are the same). Otherwise, they will be stretched or distorted. They can be any size larger than 275x275 pixels as long as the file size doesn't exceed 2MB (you'll get an error if you upload an image larger than that.)

First login, if you haven't already (click "login" in the footer of any page) and look for the menu box at the bottom of the page just below your name. Click "Create Content > Image for Slideshow"

The fields marked by a * are required.

Title *
Type in a name for the photo, such as "skea art show 4". This will not show up, but it's useful for administrative purposes.
