Customizing Your Cover Photo

Last Updated: Jun 13, 2017 05:14PM PDT
One of the best ways to personalize your personal website is to upload a custom header. This could be anything! You could select a picture relevant to your research or area of specialization, something you think will give your site a personal touch, or just a photo you just want to display to the world. 

To change your header, simply scroll down to the bottom of your personal website settings and click the green "Upload" button, then select from your computer the image that you'd like to display as the cover photo for your website. 



Here are some handy tips to upload the perfect cover photo: 
  • Select a picture that's at least 1200 pixels wide. 
  • If your picture doesn't seem to be centered, cut some off the top or the bottom. 
  • Only use images that you have the copyright or trademark license to use.   If you don't have an image this size, look for images with a Creative Commons 0 license, like on Unsplash or Pexels.

Now that your header photo is perfect, maybe you want to learn more about your personal website:
