The Logos section shows the images that have been uploaded for the Donors, such as a company logo or brand logo.
When you upload Donor logos (via the dashboard) the system will resize them as necessary. An original source size of no more than 1000px works well. Also, ideally, the logo should be "square-ish" rather then wide and short, or tall and narrow.
To show or hide the Logos information, click the Logos heading.
By adding an image of the Donor's logo, that image will be available to be included in the auction catalog and on gift certificates.
On the Donor Dashboard, if you double-click on the name of the Donor you just added the Donor's Record will open and you can make changes.
Note that if you hover over the name of the Donor, the default image for the Donor will appear.
To add another Donor, click the + symbol.
