Steps for creating and adding the image needed for social media. This is done in Drupal and will need to be sized appropriately before uploading to the website.

Step-by-step guide

If you already have the photo that you need:

  1. Take photo into Adobe Photoshop, Microsoft Paint or any photo editor that you have and size the image to the one of the following dimensions

    3. 1200x630
