Hello everyone...

I figured out how to add my banner, however, when I click Preview it brings me to my store's "homepage" and in the top left corner it says something like add your logo. I have no idea how to do that. Can someone help?

Thanks in advance.

Talia

I have the same problem - I have uploaded my logo but there is a pane that says your photo here right below that and I do not know how to add a photo to that area. Looking at others site I see that they have a logo type photo in theirs so there has to be a way to upload to that area. Help please.

This drove me crazy also and I finally found the answer somewhere in a forum thread - but I can't find it right now to point you to it. Anyway the way to update the Home Page Image is:

- In Admin Tool/Text & Colors section click on Color Templates
- Click on your currently selected template
- The current picture will display
- The Choose Image field below allows you to browse for your preferred image
- Click Update

Hope this helps....

Samplecontainerstore, you are welcome.

I remember how tough it was to find this answer so I keep it handy to respond to this frequently asked question from newbies. The official name of this feature is 'the Home Page Image' but I would have never thought to search for that particular phrase in the forums.

Took a quick look at your shop - it looks great.

Happy sales at eCrater!

I am new to ecrater, and I have looked for the answer to this question, found the answer, but I still can't get it to work. Just wanted to let you know that I at least tried on my own.

Under the instructions for adding a picture under the logo on the home page, the instructions are:

Log in the admin tool with you account

Click on the 'Color Templates' from the left menu

Find the picture that's selected. Under the selected one the radio button is selected

Click on that picture. A new screen will appear and you will be able to
upload own home picture

However, I have tried this with several pictures (all .jpg or .gif). It shows the picture as it should be, but when I preview, it is not there.

Any help would be appreciated.

Right now I can see the cafe logo/drawing in both places. Is that how it should be?

Actually, I have 2 websites, and the one I am having trouble with is anotherbeachanotherbar. I was able to do it successfully with the accessorycafe account.

Look at the second post in this thread-

It's complete with a picture to show you what to do.

I have changed the size of my photo to 175 X 196 and it is a jpeg file, but it still doesn't show in my preview. Any other ideas?

I just went back into the preview and it is there. Thanks to everyone who helped with this. I guess it just takes a while. Sorry, I am a little impatient.

It's there immediately HOWEVER your pc doesn't pull the new page view it pulls from your cache (memory) until you force a refresh of the page.
