Back by popular demand, the AChurchNearYou image gallery allows you to upload up to 20 images to show visitors more about the life of your church.
We have set a limit of 20 photos to help ensure these photos remain current. When you have new photos to add to the gallery, just delete some of the older ones currently in the gallery.
You can delete an image by clicking the delete icon in the top right had corner of the image.
We have also set a minimum size for these photos of 1024 x 768 pixels resolution and 100 KB file size to ensure the images look professional and clear. There is no maximum size – our software resizes your images to an optimum size.
If you have not yet added an images, click the link which says Manage your gallery (under your profile picture).
To add images to a gallery you already have images in, click on the pencil on the right of the gallery, under your profile picture. This will bring up the Manage your gallery page.
To add an image on the Manage your gallery page, click the Upload button in the Add an image box. Here, you will be able to upload your chosen image, write a short description if you wish and add Alternative Text. This is compulsory, as this is what a screen reader will read aloud to visually impaired and blind visitors.
Please ensure you have permission to use each image in this way and that the image complies with GDPR and your church's safeguarding policy.
Before clicking Save, ensure you have ticked the boxes asking whether you have permission to share the photo if a child or vulnerable adult is identifiable, and whether you have permission to share the photo if it does not belong to you.
If you find there is one photo showing on your church's profile, but isn't appearing in your gallery, then it's likely to be your church's 'building photo', you can find out how to add/remove/change your church's building photo in this article: https://achurchnearyou.zendesk.com/hc/en-us/articles/360002437153-Adding-a-profile-picture-logo-church-building-image-and-cover-image-and-recommended-dimensions
