How do I upload and delete images?

Images are uploaded to PRLeap and made available for editing while working in the Create step of our Press Release Builder. Every image you upload will be stored in the Media Gallery section of the press release and can be edited from there. A Media Gallery can contain up to 5 images, or a combination of images and videos.

Troubleshooting

If you're having difficulty uploading an image, or getting an uploaded image to display in the Preview step of the Press Release Builder, then take a look at the following notes.

Notes

  • The best size image to upload is 1280x960 pixels and we recommend a minimum of 640x480 pixels. The file size should be 5MB or less.
  • GIF, JPG, PNG files are all safe to upload. PDF, PSD, AI files are NOT allowed. Not because we don't like them, but because browsers don't support or know how to display them.
  • Images used in a press release need to be saved in a RGB format rather than a CMYK format. Some browsers and email programs can't display CMYK images because CMYK is typically used in print and not for the web.
  • Spaces or special characters shouldn't be used in the filename. Keep the names simple, yet easily identifiable.
