Having Trouble Uploading Your Photos? Try These Quick Steps!
Photo Requirements for Point2 Agent
· For listing photos - if the file sizesof the photos are larger than 500 KB, or up into the 1MB or larger size, it is recommended that you upload them one at a time.
· Even for smaller photos (e.g.100-400KB), the number of photos uploaded at once may need to be limited.
· Photos must be saved as either .jpg or.gif file extension. These are the two most common image file extensions,and are the only image file types that are compatible with the Point2 Agent software.
· File name and folder names cannot include symbols (e.g. photo#1-trip.jpg) If this is the case, the file must be renamed with these requirements in mind.
· File path for the photo must not exceed 250 characters.
Issue: You are attempting to add photos to your Point2 Agent account, however the photo box appears blue or black, or is a white text box that contains a Red X.
Troubleshoot: Ask yourself, is this a first time photo upload, or have you successfully uploaded photos to your account previously.
If this is your first time uploading a photo to your Point2 Agent Account:
· When first attempting to upload an image to your account, a Security Warning screen will open asking you to install Java, which will be required for you to be able to add images to your website. Instructions can be found here on how to install Java so that you may upload photos to your website.
If you have successfully uploaded images to your Point2 Agent Account in the past:
· There may be a program that has been enabled in your browser that is set to block pop-ups. For example, a Google toolbar has an option that will allow for the blocking of pop-ups. If a Google toolbar or another program is in place to block pop-ups, please disable temporarily so that the security warning can be accepted.

Do you have an Anti-Virus or Firewall program installed on your computer?
· Your Anti-Virus program may have to be disabled in order to upload photos to your listings, as well as adding youruser photo and logo.
· You must disable the program entirely,not just some of the individual applications within the anti-virus program.
· If you are using a Firewall program then you may need to disable those as well, or change some settings within that program.
· You may also want to try adding your domain name to a Trusted Sites list for those programs.
