  • Using your own images: Simple option After selecting Simple option in the "change image" drop down, choose which page you would like to apply your image to (home page or inner page) Then paying close attention to the specified image dimensions, you will want to check that your image matches this before using the "Browse" and upload button. If you attempt to upload something that is to large or small, the editor will alert you of this. Every template will vary in the image size that is allowed. Once you have uploaded your image, and you can see it on the screen you will click the "next" button. This next page will give you different options for applying "effects" to images. If you prefer to have no effects, select the unedited image. You can do a "Preview" of how it will look, or "edit" if you want to change it again. Once satisfied with the image you would select "Submit changes".

After selecting Advanced option in the "change image" drop down, choose which page you want to apply your image to (home page or inner page) You will see a page that shows you the image you are replacing and a option to "download the background image".

"Welcome Page Option" - Easy Website Builder
A Welcome page has a unique design allowing for greater customization from the Home page and other interior pages of your web site. A Welcome page generally is more limited on the amount of page navigation buttons, images and text that can be shown due to the special nature of it's design. Think of it as a "Intro page", not one of your main pages. If you try to add to much text or images to a Welcome page you may "break" the template, causing distortion on your page. The green outline that is on the page indicates how tall/wide the column is and how much you can insert into it.

Having a Welcome page is optional and you should consider the limitations of the design while building your website.

Once located click on "Upload". Once this image is uploaded into the builder the screen will show all the files and images currently in the builder. Locate your image and click the "Edit" button to the right of the image name. You will now see the image properties (sizing, alignment etc) If you don't have any edits to make on this image, you can just click "Insert" and the image will pop into the page you were working on.
