Header Tab




On left:


Header Image Lists:  This shows the list of photos that will appear at the top of the blog (the header)


  1. Upload photos  ( 1000 x 312 px )




On Right:




  1. Use Server Side resampling: if you select “True”, this will reduce the file size (by percentage) of your images making them easier on the user’s bandwidth. However, we do suggest that when you are in Photoshop, you adjust the quality of your images to make them the optimum size for reduced bandwidth.
  2. Resampling Quality: Turn the percentage of the server side re-sampling up or down to increase or reduce the size of the files.
  3. Slideshow timer: How fast do you want the photos to load the next image on the list.
  4. Autoplay Video: Do you want video to automatically start playing?
  5. Turn Image Letterboxing on: When click on a photo in your posts it will open in that window with nothing else except that image
