02: Preparing Images for Event | Process Street 02: Preparing Images for Event – Process Street

Start Here

Why?

We post up recordings of all our webinars and coaching calls for our members who cannot attend the events live. We give each call an image that is consistent with our branding.

You can see examples of previous calls here: http://members.wpelevation.com/coaching-calls/

What You Will Need

You will need access to:

  • our BigstockPhoto account (logins are in the vault)

  • the WPE VUM Blog Images folder in Dropbox

  • Photoshop or Preview on the Mac for cropping images.

If you do not have access to these resources, please contact Troy Dean or Gin McInneny to request access.

Find an Image

Read the overview of the event in the asana task's parent. This will give you a good idea of what the event will be about, and help you better choose a relevant image.

Log into our Big Stock account using the logins from the vault.

Search for business related images and refine your search by choosing Vector and Landscape from the filters.

Choose an image that we have not already used in the members website.
