How to resize images for Campaigns

Follow

You can add an image to your Standard, Announcement and Birthday Campaigns within the Merchant Centre.

Images need to be 300 x 600 pixels to fit the image section perfectly. 

This is what 300 x 600 looks like. A horizontal rectangle.

Square, triangle, oval and other shapes will not be a good fit for your campaign image.

There are a few ways to resize an image, however we will show you two ways using the Snipping Tool and Paint App.

 

Resizing an image using the Snipping Tool

Most Microsoft devices have the Snipping Tool by default. It looks like this:

Step 2:

Use the Snipping Tool in Rectangular Snip Mode and draw a box on the original image to select the area you wish to use. Again ensure you are getting a Horizontal Rectangular image
