Introduction To Images

As the old adage goes "a picture is worth a thousand words" and Auctria provides for using images on the platform with items, as logos for donors, sponsors, and the organization as well as a means to provide decorative elements on your Auction Website.

Concepts

  • Images
    To further customize your auctions you can add images for the following items: Organization Logo; Auction Logo; Item Images; Donor Images; and, if a Sponsor, you can also add Bidder Images.
  • Image Sizes
    In Auctria, Image Sizes (or "dimensions") can play a very important role where they are used. High resolution images are not necessary for Auction Website usage and will slow page loading times.
  • Image Type
    Only JPEG (.jpg, .jpeg) and PNG (.png) file formats are currently accepted.

Items

  • Images And Links
    You can save and manage your item images on the Images/Links tab. These are the specific images associated with the item. You can set the default item image used as the primary display reference. Additional images can also be uploaded to automatically generate an image carousel on the Item Details website page.

  • Batch Image Upload (advanced)
    You can upload multiple images at once and have the system automatically assign them to different items. Each image must be mapped to a single item, however, if you have a folder of images named item_1, item_2, item_3 the system will upload the highlighted images in the folder and assign them to items# 1, 2, 3, etc.

Logos

  • Add Donors - Logos
    The Logos section shows the images that have been uploaded for the Donors, such as a company logo or brand logo.
    Donor Logos

    INFORMATION

    When you upload Donor Logos the system will resize them as necessary. An original source size of no more than 1000px works well; and, ideally, the logo should be "square" rather than wide and short, or tall and narrow.

  • Add Images To Donors
    One or more images may be added to each donor record. By adding an image to a donor, that image will be available to be included in the auction catalog and on gift certificates.
