How to: Upload a picture

Adding a profile picture to your website is a great way to bring a personal touch to your store. To view a sample of a MyAIMStore with a profile picture on the main page, visit the demo for Theme One.

To add a profile picture, you first need to upload a photo of yourself to your MyAIMStore. Log-in to your store’s dashboard, and select Media > Add New from the menu bar at left.

Click “Select Files” and browse for the file on your computer. Once you have selected the file, you may click “OK,” and MyAIMStore will upload the file.

Note: Take note of the “Image url” as this will be used to insert your picture into your web store.

Now head to your store’s Widget section by selecting Appearance > Widgets from the menu bar at left. Drag-and-drop the “Text” widget from the Available Widgets section to the Sidebar section.

In the text area, type the following, and place your image URL inside of the quotation marks:

<img src="image url">

Click Save. View your MyAIMStore to see if the image you inserted fits your theme. If not, you may need to resize your image using image-editing software or HTML code.

Note: For additional help with images, view MyAIMStore’s Frequently Asked Questions file.

    I am unable to upload an image. It keeps telling me “Upload failed! Error was: The GD image library is not installed.”. What do I need to do in order to make this work?
