You have the option to change your Essenty marketing website's Home Page featured image. This is the big image found on the top of your marketing website's home page.


This is an ADVANCED TOOL and if you follow these directions very carefully (especially for cropping a high-quality image down) then the image will look really good. 


You may choose to use an image we've provided instead of creating your own, see below.



This video shows you how - and the written directions are below







MOST IMPORTANT POINTS:

1. The image you choose needs to be a high-resolution photo that you can CROP DOWN (or slightly up) to 2400 wide by 1200 tall. Video shows how to crop it perfectly.

2. The above-outlined crop size is important so that your image will resize for different devices and screen sizes.

3. You are responsible for only using images that you either own the copyrights to (meaning you created it) or it is a "free source" image that you have the authorization to use. For example, you can get free stock images on PicMonkey, FreePik, and other sources including paid sites, like AdobeStock. However, Google images are usually copyrighted.

4. If your image is too small, when you try to make it 2400 wide or 1200 tall it will distort the image badly and will look bad on your site. So you are best to reduce it to that size when resizing or cropping.


5. This image location is a DYNAMIC image that resizes for all screen sizes. This means if you use it to put writing on an image, then you should center that writing (vertically) and ensure it looks right on a computer.

Once your image is cropped to size, you're ready to upload it.
