FAQ: Adding Images or Graphics in the Builder
The requirements and interface differ for each section where you can add graphics within the Builder. You can add graphics in the design (banner and logos), the editor (for a blog/forum/common page), Adding a picture to a blog/forum/common page uses a picture optimized for website use. This means that the image will be considerably smaller and optimized for quick loads for the web page.
Using the Editor to add images in the Builder
When you are adding images in a non-gallery page, you will see the folowing contraints:
- Recommended max size = 200KB
- Supported graphic file formats are .gif, .jpg, jpeg, .png, .bmp
The recommended max file size is not absolute, but it does depend upon the area that you are adding a graphic. The editor allows you to add an image in a table, forum, blog, eshop or anyplace that text (and an image) can be added within the website that you are creating. You should keep all image sizes as minimal as possible in order to provide an optimal viewing experience for your visitors.

Adding Graphics in the eShop
When you are adding images in the eShop, you should keep the images as optimized as possible. Use the same rule of thumb for the images (200kb) for the product image or images that you add into its description.
Adding Banners or Logos in the Builder
If you are adding a custom banner or logo to the Builder it is important to note the size of the graphic, since you would have to match it if you were to replace it. You should also note that the template type can determine how you would edit the banner. We have some tutorials that can help guide you through this process:
The important thing to note about working with the banner is if it is dynamic or static. If it is dynamic, a small portion of the graphic is being used to adjust with the size of the window expanding on the page. Check out the articles to determine if the banner is static or dyanmic:
