Make sure you upload all the photos that you know are important to the campaign and do the best job of conveying your message visually and telling a story all by themselves. These are super important! There’s no limit on how many you can upload, but we can’t stress enough how important it is to upload at least four and be sure they’re great quality and large enough to show well. You don’t need to upload 50 photos. After about 15, it starts to get boring and repetitive. It’s not necessarily quantity as much as quality. Lousy photos (too small, out of focus, too dark, etc.) can actually hurt your campaign.
Selecting your Main Image
After you’ve uploaded all your best photos and graphics, you need to choose which one will be your Main Image. This is by far the most important photo on your GivingGrid, because it’s what greets your visitors. It by itself needs to tell a story or paint a picture. If there was no text to back it up, this photo would do it all! WE DO NOT RECOMMEND PUTTING YOUR LOGO THERE. People don’t care about it and 99.9% of the time, it won’t move anyone. If you must have it, show it on the Detailed Overview.
The Main Image should be “landscape” oriented, meaning wider than tall.
