Adding photos to your CrowdRise campaign is an important part of making your campaign personal to your nonprofit's mission. Follow the tips below to ensure accuracy and ease of uploading photos:
All of the image placeholders on CrowdRise are generally rectangle, oriented in landscape format.
If your photo does not fit this format already, you will be asked to crop the top and bottom edges. You can also crop out that person who photobombed your otherwise lovely photo.
The best way to prevent cropping is by starting with a horizontal, rectangular image.
Make sure that any photo you upload is at least the recommended size listed above (that just means you don't want to use really small photos or they won't look as good). If it’s smaller than the recommended size, it will be stretched to fit.
Make sure your photo is facing the right direction before you upload it. Mac computers will automatically turn your photo the correct direction on your computer, but it may not really be saved that way.
Even if it looks right on your computer, you should open it using the photo software on your computer or a free program online to double check that your photo is actually oriented in the right direction, and then save it. This way, the upload to CrowdRise will be perfect.
If you're having trouble getting an image sized to fit on CrowdRise, try using a free, online photo-editing service like BeFunky.com or PicMonkey.com to upload and edit your photo.
