PHOTO UPLOAD GUIDE

Saving an Image from the Web

If you want to upload an image from a website such as Pinterest, a blog or Google search results, simply right click on the image (control click on a Mac) and save image as a jpeg.  Save to a folder you can easily navigate to when Cora prompts you to upload to the site. Some browsers will also let you download the image, then you can open and save it to a new folder.

Our search engine accepts JPEG and PNG image files.

Some pointers:

  • Use images with a clear view of the couch.  Our site has a hard time reading the image if the couch is turned to the side.
  • Use hi-res images.  Hi-res images should be at least 500 pixels on one side. 
    • To check pixel size on a MAC: Open the image, go to “Tools” in the top bar navigation and click on “Show Inspector.”  You’ll see “Image Size” half way down the box that pops up.
    • To check pixel size on a PC: Open the image you want to use, right-click on the image and then select "Properties." A window will appear with the image's details. Go to the "Details" tab to see the image's dimensions and resolution.
  • Images should not be larger than 10Mb.
  • For Google search results, click on the image before saving it to get the higher-res version.
  • For Pinterest, click the thumbnail on the board to save the larger version of the image.
  • For Instagram we recommend using either Dinsta or DownloadGram to download images.
