Uploading Photos

Adding photographs to your property is a crucial part in presentation to holiday makers, we have not set a limit on how many you use, but we suggest using images relevant to your property description.

Before you can upload images to your property page, there are a few things you need to do:

  • Determine the file size of your photographs.
  • Resize your photographs if they are above 1MB in file size.
  • Make sure they are in JPG format

Once you have determined the size of your photographs and resized them where necessary you can proceed and upload your photographs to your property page.

Alternatively if you decide not to upload photographs, you can send us your images by email or post them to us instead.

Determine the file size of your photographs.

Any one of the images you wish to upload must not exceed 1 MegaByte in file size. You must determine the file size of your photographs before you upload them. If your images exceed 1.0 Megabyte you will need to resize them before uploading them to your property page.

Firstly, here is how to check the file size:

Determining file size For PC users: In Microsoft Windows XP

Right click on the image file and then Left click on Properties. This should display a window containing various details, one of which will be Size: This should not exceed 1.0 MegaBytes

Resizing your photographs.

If your pictures are bigger than 1.0 MegaByte, you will need to resize them before you can use them on your property page. If you are not aware of how to resize images, you can follow the instructions below.

Many digital cameras come with their own software for resizing images, unfortunately we cannot document every single third party piece of software that is available – So we have documented a method which we feel works consistently across all digital cameras and images.

If you feel that the method below is incorrect or was not helpful to you, then feel free to give us feedback and help us make our help section better for everyone.

Internet Connection Speeds

The amount of time that you must wait depends on how fast your internet connection is and how large your images are. As a rough guide, with broadband internet, uploading 1MegaByte will take around 40 seconds. On dialup modems 1MegaByte will take roughly 5 Minutes. So if you are uploading two images around 1MegaByte in size – on broadband you will need to wait for 2 minutes / on dialup you will need to wait nearly 10 minutes.

When the images have finished uploading, you will be prompted to add Description text for each of your images. This is the text that will be displayed with the images when someone is viewing your property page.

After entering these details, remember to click on Save photo details

Saving your photo descriptions

You can repeat this process to add more photos at any point. There is no limit on how many you photographs you can upload, but we suggest you make the photographs relevant to your property description.
