Next, just click on the image you would like to use.

To use a new banner image, you’ll need to send it to Scott McCollum for approval, and he can get it uploaded for you. The image size needs to be 1170×366 or larger – as high quality as possible.

Some suggestions for picking a new banner image:

  • Be mindful of how the site menu will cover up the left-hand side of the image you want to use
  • Make sure the image is not too “busy,” meaning it doesn’t have so much going on in it that you can’t understand its context to the site
  • Make sure you have permission for anyone appearing in the image, especially if they are a minor
  • The image should reflect something from your county or area of expertise
