Custom Image on Presentation Page

Post by Supersonics »

Is there a way to add an image to the Presentation Page?

Instead of seeing the stock excel type graphics, I would love to be able to put an image of our Poker League in there.

Thanks,
Supersonics

Hi,

actually, you can already do this....

Normally, you would use the "Image Manager" (Second button of the presentation page editor) to upload an image to your image folder on the StatsGenie website... BUT, the image manager seems to be broken, I've added this as a bug to our backlog.

As a workaround, you could always for now, add or edit the <img > tags in <> HTML mode (second button of status bar of presentation page editor besides Design mode) .... You would need to link to an external site, or convert your image to Base64. And have basic knowledge of HTML.

So switching to HTML, you can insert an image tag that would look like this:
<ìmg alt='League Image' src= 'http://yourWebsite.com/yourImage.png'>
OR
To convert your images to base 64, search image to bas64 on google, you will find a lot of nice tools to do this for you, simply copy & paste the results in the src= '' of your img tag, it would look something like :
<img alt="League Image" src="data:image/jpeg;base64,/9j/4AAQSkZJRgABAQAAAQABAAD/2w ....... +weSiuV/UWSrWGrjhbw2JJK3B+Zv4Oz0G+Fx5kjcu20vNJhjVqSSS1p7EJ0pPb2f//Z" />

Hope this helps,

I tried a few times to upload images for custom e-mails and now the Presentation Page and was unable to upload an image successfully. Glad to know this is a bug and not user-error, which is usually the case for me. :lol:

The html stuff is out of my league, so hopefully a fix happens at some point as it would be really cool to be able to add some images.

Thanks!

Hi, while evaluating the request, we found another workaround that would be simpler:

- This is on PC platform, but the same process should work on Mac if you are using a MAC
- Open your image in MS Paint (Or your default image editor)
- Use the select tool to select parts of the image (or CTRL-A to select the whole image)
- Copy the contents to your clipboard (CTRL-C)
- Then paste the image in the presentation page editor (CTRL-V)
- Resize and move the image using the editor.

Let us know if this works for you!

That worked!
I used Command-V on MAC to paste and I was able to place an image.
Thanks,
