Original Post: New Portfolio Hero Images

ArtWanted is happy to announce a new free upgrade... Portfolio Hero Images!

What's a Hero Image?

A "hero image" is a large banner-like header image that is designed to capture attention of the website visitor. For artists and photographers, your hero image should represent your best work and invite the visitor to dive into your portfolio more.

All members of ArtWanted can upload now upload a hero image to enhance the look of their main portfolio page. The hero image can be one of your favorite images or you can create a custom hero image using a collage of your artwork/photos.

Hero Image Tips:

  • Horizontal images are strongly recommended.
  • The length should be 4x the height (ie 2,000 pixels wide by 500 pixels tall)
  • JPG images (in RGB color mode) work the best.
  • Darker/colorful images look better, as your name will be in white text.
  • The top part of your image will be displayed, so crop your image before upload.
  • After uploading your image, review the results and tweak your image if needed.

We look forward to seeing what you can do with your portfolio hero image. To get started, visit your USER PREFERENCES page and upload your new hero image in the Portfolio Layout area.
