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:
- Enter an update with a URL.
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
