Adding an event image

When creating or editing an entry, you can upload the main entry image using the Image uploader tool:

The tool also allows you to select an existing image from your previously uploaded files. 

Once you've selected an image, a tool option will appear for you to crop it so it fits with our pre-defined dimensions.

We recommend using an image at least 2000x1125px (16:9 ratio), no larger than 10MB, and in JPG or PNG file format. 

A great tool to use is Resize image, which enables you to adjust the image size before uploading it to Bookwhen.

The image is played on your public page at the top of your event, just below the event name:

Editing or removing an event image

Once you have added an event image as outlined above, you will find the two options 'Edit' and 'Remove' in the top right above the image:

The Edit option will allow you to drag and resize the field to crop your image, whereas the 'Remove' option will delete the image and allow you to upload or select a new one.

Adding images to your event description

If you'd like to add additional images to your event description, you can do so as outlined below:

Images are inserted by linking to a public image link. This means it already has to exist somewhere on the internet. You can host your image in your attachments section of Bookwhen -

Next, copy the image link address. Please note the image link address is not the URL of the image when you click on it. Right-click on the image link in your attachments section and copy the link address like this:



Next, insert the copied link into the bracketed area of these lines of text.

  • The syntax is: 

! [image name] (

⚠️ Please make sure you remove the spaces from the example above.

It will look like this once you have pasted the whole section into your event description:

And this is the result on the public page:

You will need to ensure the image is already uploaded in the correct sizing to your attachments, as you can't resize it later.
