Basic Information

Image The image should be a standard jpeg, in rgb mode, with a resolution of 72dpm. Any size of image can be used. Simply upload the jpeg by clicking on Choose File and navigate to the image file stored in your own file system. If you are replacing an existing image, select “Replace with new image” and then click Choose File and navigate to the new file.

Professional Information

A few of the boxes on the Professional Information page allow you to format text and add images and hyper links. If you hover over the edit icons in the editing bar, you will see helpful tool tips. 

If you are cutting and pasting information from another document, please use the “Paste as text” option in the editing bar to strip out any formatting.

To add a link to your text, select the relevant text. This will cause the link icon (a chain-link) to become active.  Click on the chain icon, and then select the type of link you would like to add (Internal, External, Email, or Anchor). Paste in (or in the case of internal links, navigate to) the link address and click OK.
