Adding Images to Your Project Updates

Want to add photos to your project Updates?

Here is a video and step-by-step tutorial to help you add images to increase the energy of your update and engage more of your supporters and the public that visits your project page.

Step 1: Adding the image to our system

Go to your “Gallery Images” in your user dashboard and add the photo you want to include in your update.

Step 2: Finding the image address (or URL)

Go to your main project page
click through the gallery to get to the new photo
Right click (PC) or two finger tap (Mac)
Click “Copy image url” (Chrome), Copy Image Location (Firefox), Copy Image Address (Safari)

Step 3: Inserting into your Update

Go to your “Updates” page in your user dashboard.
Click “Text” and click where you want the image to go.
Click “img” and paste the image url into the box.
Click OK.
Enter a description.
Click OK.
Click “Visual” and you will see the image in your update.

Step 4 (optional): Removing the photo from the gallery

Go to Gallery Images in your user dashboard
Click on Library
Find the image you just uploaded in the right box
Click on the X in the bottom left corner of the image to remove it

Once it is removed, the image is no longer shown on your project page gallery, but it is still in our system and will still be on your update.

 

EXTRA TIP: If the image is already on your organization’s website, then you can skip Step 1. Just find the image on your website and start from Step 2.
