Uploading & managing property images

  1. Within the property click on the  Images & Media Tab (next to Edit).
    You will be taken to the Media summary where you can add images, floorplans, VR’s and Links.
  2. On the right hand side of the Image screen there is an upload box. Click on the Browse Button to locate an image from your harddrive. You can upload more than one image at a time.
  3. Once you have picked the images to upload, press Upload
  4. A pop up box will appear displaying the upload progress. Once complete, you can press the little X to close the box.
  5. If you would like to re-order your images (remembering the First image is the Feature image), you can drag and drop them into place. Once in order, press the Reorder Images button.
  6. If you would like to Delete an image, drag it into the trash can on the right hand side and press Empty.

Image Tips and Tricks!

Here are some simple rules to keep in mind when resizing or uploading images:

File size Try to keep each image below 1megabyte (mb) in size. This will help ensure the upload process is as fast as possible. Some modern cameras can save images in excess of 25 megabytes which is too large to upload to iDashboard.

File dimensions Always try to upload landscape images in a 4:3 ratio (for every 4units across, it will be 3 units down). We recommend uploading images that are 2000px wide and 1500px high. If you must upload portrait images, move them to the end of your images.

File types Property images and floor plans can be uploaded as JPEG, GIF or PNG. A combination of these three file types can be uploaded to an individual property.

Batch uploads Try to limit batch uploads to 5-6 images at a time. Once you have uploaded your first batch proceed to doing your second batch.

Image unavailable Professionally altered (photo-shopped) images can sometimes be saved in a CMYK format. CMYK is the format required by most printers for digital printing. Due to the considerable strain that CMYK images can put on our media servers, their usage is not permitted. If you upload a CMYK image into iDashboard it will appear as 'Image Unavailable'. Ensure images uploaded are in RGB colorspace.
