Maximise your visual impact on


A picture speaks a thousand words… A truism, perhaps, but the old adage certainly makes sense when buyers are deciding who to work with and what materials to use for their projects. Potential suppliers are often shortlisted on the basis of visual information alone.

In this quick ‘How to’ video, we show you how to make the most of the images in your illustrated entries on Brand new functionality in our Content Management System allows you to re-crop, zoom and drag-and-drop images.

We save three versions of any illustrations you upload:

  1. High quality image for zoom.  The zoom function is enabled if the image you upload is high enough quality, allowing interested buyers to get a better feel for your proposition.
  2. Thumbnail image.  The thumbnail cropped to’s standard size to present you to best advantage in search results and gallery displays.
  3. Standard image for display on your product or case study page.

  • Click ‘Edit this entry‘, which appears to the right of the page title, to go to the Content Management System
  • Open the ‘Images’ tab and click the yellow ‘Add an image‘ button
