In Step 10 a picture of the item can be loaded to the storefront.
The picture of the item will be used on various pages in a thumbnail (small postage stamp size) format and in a larger more detailed format on the Item Details page.
Only pictures of GIF and JPG formats will be accepted. Pictures must be less than 40k. It is recommended that the dimensions of the image do exceed 400 pixels in width.
Due to copyright issues it is recommended that your images are not super high quality. The image should fairly represent the item but it is not necessary to represent all the details.

To add a picture, in Step 10, click the Browse button to locate the picture file on your system and then click the Upload button to load the picture onto the server. After the picture has been uploaded a message will appear in the Step 10 section to indicate if the upload was successful or not.
The Mac verion of IE 4.5 does not download properly - upgrade to 5.0.
If successful, a thumbnail (scaled down version) of the picture will appear on the right hand side of the Step 8 section. When replacing an existing picture the thumbnail will not update after the upload. To update the thumbnail click Refresh or Reload. Some browsers logout when Refresh is clicked - you will need to log back in.
To remove a picture from a web page click the Upload button without clicking the Browse button first. After the Upload the thumbnail may still display the old picture. To clear the picture click Refresh or Reload.
