Group Cover Images are usually set using the image of an object within the group itself. This isn’t necessarily always the most appropriate option. An alternative would be to utilise an image that can better illustrate or describe the purpose of the Group.
For instance, if your Group of objects is based on Location such as a building - you could use an image of the building itself.
You could even upload images with bold typeface to make the Group name really stand out.
This visual guide will walk you through firstly uploading an image to Collectrium, and then setting it as a Group Cover.
1. Upload an Image
a. Click on Documents in the left hand menu panel.
b. Click on the Unused tab found at the top centre of the page.
c. Click on +Media or Image in the top right hand corner of the screen;
- This will produce a window with which you can either click and select from your files or drag and drop your image for upload.
- Accepted Image file types include: .png, .jpg, and .tiff.
Having uploaded your image, you will see it populated on the Unused tab in front of you. Now you are ready to set it as a Group Cover.
2. Set as Group Cover Image
