The saying goes that an image is worth a thousand words, and for telling your customers about your business, images provide a valuable message to anyone who visits your site.

We have a couple of ways to add images to customize your site via Uploads and URLs up to 20 MBs for ease.


Option 1: Upload Image

  1. To begin, launch your website editor by choosing Edit Site.
