Adding a custom image for an update that includes a URL

When you include a URL in your update, you’ll usually see a preview with a thumbnail image, article title, and some text. If an image is not available, the preview area will have a No image foundmessage. You can also upload a custom image file from your computer.

To upload your custom image:

  1. Enter an update with a URL.
  2. When the preview image appears, click the upload image icon (looks like a square with a plus sign) in the upper right of the image thumbnail.
  3. Select the image file you want to upload. The file type should be JPG, GIF, or PNG, and max size of 100MB.
    • Your uploaded image will be automatically resized to fit the 180 x 110 pixel thumbnail space.
  4. Click Share.

If you’re still not able to upload your image, contact us and attach the image you wanted to upload so we can troubleshoot the issue.
