Creating Effective Banner Images

You have the option of adding a banner image to your auction which will appear on Handbid.com when someone browses your auction.  This is a similar concept to Facebook's cover photo.  

The banner image works best when a user is viewing your auction on a desktop computer.  When a user views your banner image on a mobile device, it will be cut off to just show a small portion of it around your logo.  We don't recommend you try to design your banner image to look good on a mobile device.  There is not enough screen space on those devices for any banner image to be useful.

 

BANNER DIMENSION
Your banner image should be 1140 pixels wide by 280 pixels high.  We have included a photoshop template here with this article that you can use to size and organize your banner.  

 

BANNER USE
Use your banner to promote your organization, your auction, or your sponsors.  Our customers have gotten very creative with their banners. If you look on Handbid.com, you will see many of them.  

 

 

INSTALLING THE BANNER
The banner is uploaded to the PHOTOS tab section of your Auction settings.  You can view how to do that here in this article:  Handbid Auction Settings
