How To: Edit the Cover Page

The cover page is the front of the calendar that shows when it is folded up. This page has a single picture with a thin white border around it. The tools for editing this page include:

  • the "Upload Image" (1) button;
  • the "Choose Existing Image" (2) button;
  • the "Save Calendar" (3) button;
  • the "Next" (4) button.

There is also an editor navigation menu (5) across the bottom.

Cover image editing screen

To the right of the screen you will see how your page will look. As you make selections this part will update automatically.

Click the Upload Image button to choose a picture off your computer to go on the cover. This image will need to be at least 1200 pixels high by 1575 pixels wide. A file browser will appear letting you select image files from your computer. Pick the image that you want and it will upload to our servers. Once the image uploads you will see the Crop window. This window lets you cut the picture you chose to match the size of the cover.

Cropping window

The window shows a rectangle with four selectable corners. You can grab and me any of these corners, but the aspect ratio (relative height to width) of the rectangle will stay constant. Move this rectangle around the picture until it shows the part you want on your calendar. Once you have the view you want, click the "Crop" (6) button.

After you crop the image it will show up on the page display.

Click the Choose Existing Image button to select an image that you have already uploaded. You can only pick from images that have been cropped to the size needed for the cover. When you click this button the Pick an Image window pops up.

Cropping window

If you have already uploaded and cropped images to the size needed you will see a grid of thumbnail pictures showing which ones are available. You can scroll through this grid as necessary to find the one you want. Click an image to select it. After you click it the window will disappear and the selected image will show up on the page display.

If you don''t see one you like just click the "Cancel" button (7) and the window will go away.

If you click Choose Existing Image but you haven't uploaded any of the right size you will get a friendly notice.

Cropping window

Just click Cancel (8) and it will go away.
