Uploading, editing, and deleting gift certificate thumbnailsBack to top
When you have finished configuring gift certificate description settings, click the Next button at the bottom right of the screen. This brings you to the Media tab. Let's start by looking at thumbnail image settings.
Uploading the gift certificate thumbnail imageBack to top
By default, the gift certificate thumbnail consists of a wrapped gift in Checkfront blue.
This is perfect for most situations, but you may want to use your image to match your company's branding. Click on the +Upload Image button and select the chosen image from your computer. Once the image is loaded, it is resized to fit the thumbnail size.
|Images are resized to fit the 320x80 pixel thumbnail size.
If your image doesn't fit this ratio, then don't worry... you can edit what is displayed. However, an image larger than this yields better results when displayed on the screen. Try making it at least twice as big if you can.
Editing the gift certificate thumbnail imageBack to top
To edit the gift certificate thumbnail, move your mouse over the new gift certificate thumbnail and click on the Edit Image button.
A pop-up window opens containing the Gift Certificate Thumbnail editor. Drag the cropping area to select the part of your image you'd like to display.
When satisfied with your choice, you can click Save in the bottom right. If the image you chose already has dimensions in the same ratio as the original thumbnail, then you do not need to do any cropping.
Deleting the gift certificate thumbnail imageBack to top
Do you need to remove the gift certificate thumbnail? Hover over the image and click on the trash can icon. From there, confirm that you want to delete the image by clicking on Yes, Delete and the image is removed.
