Take Your Tag Page to the Top

Thursday, April 4th, 2013

One of the best ways to create an engaging and interesting page on ShopYourWay is by adding a Hero Ad and Profile Icon to the top of your page.

Doing so will not only unify the page’s content, but it will also attractively display what your page is all about.

It’s a fast and awesome communication tool; as they say, a picture is worth a thousand words!

To help you get started we’ve outlined some guidelines that will make it a cinch!

Hero Ad

The Hero Ad is the large image at the top of your tag page right above your page’s profile icon. To ensure the best visibility and readability for your Hero Ad, please use the following guidelines.

  • The image you use must be at exactly 230 pixels high.
  • The image must also be at least 560 pixels wide, but we recommend that it be 1900 pixels wide for it to look its best.
  • It is best to locate any text within the Hero Ad inside the “safe area” of 768 pixels to ensure 100% visibility for all screen sizes and mobile tablets.
  • If you would like to insert a linked button within the Hero Ad, please use an online image map editor.
  • To achieve the best quality image for your Hero Ad, please upload images as PNG files.

Profile Icon

  • Profile icon images must be at least 230 x 230 pixels.
  • To achieve the best quality image, please upload images as either PNG or JPEG files. 

Please DO NOT:

  • Upload empty images to your tag page.
  • Upload images containing profanity or expletives, nor political, sexual, or other sensitive material.
  • Upload images with QR codes.
  • Upload images containing nonexistent functionalities, including but not limited to play buttons that suggest video capability and close buttons that do not close.
  • Upload images that are inappropriate for age groups under 18.
