Once you've claimed your profile, it's time to customise it. Your Profile's wallpaper can display up to 5 images and/or videos.
Each wallpaper is displayed for 30 seconds on a random rotation. If needs be, wallpapers will be cropped/resized to fit the browser window as per the device/display screen accordingly. Your wallpapers may also be compressed for optimised display.
You can choose to display just videos as your wallpapers or just images, or a combination of both with a maximum of 5 different backgrounds.
Here's what you need to know to set your wallpapers up correctly:
For your videos:
You can have up to 5 different video wallpapers
Use a resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels
Video file size has to be a max of 5MB
Videos can only be MP4 files
Videos will be displayed for 30 seconds at a time (longer videos will be cut short)
For your images:
Images can only be: JPEG, PNG files
Use a resolution of at least 1920 x 1200 pixels
Your image file size must be 5MB or less
Images will be displayed for 30 seconds at a time and on random rotation
The maximum resolution that can be used is 8000 x 5000 pixels
How to Add Wallpapers
To add backgrounds to your profile, make sure you're logged in and click on the Branding tab. In the panel that appears, scroll down until you see the 'Wallpapers' section. Click on one of these windows to add your own image or video, or choose from our gallery of editorial wallpapers. If you already have 5 wallpapers active, you need to remove one of them to be able to select an image from our gallery.
To remove or preview your video background, hover over it with your mouse and click on the X in the middle of the image to delete it or preview it.
Once you've added new backgrounds make sure to click the "Save changes" button at the bottom of the page.
You can choose to link your backgrounds to another website. When a visitor clicks on your profile backgrounds, a separate window will open the website you've linked your profile to. You can link to your company website, art portfolio, LinkedIn profile, Facebook page or any other site.
You're not allowed to sell your wallpaper space. For more info on this, please see our Terms of Service.
You may notice when you upload a new Profile background that your wallpaper does not load correctly and instead what you see is one of WeTransfer's backdrops instead of your own.
This could be due to your image having the CMYK color mode as opposed to RGB color mode in its settings.
All you need to do is switch the color mode to RGB. Use a resolution of at least 1900 x 1200 pixels. The maximum resolution that can be used is 8000 x 5000 pixels.
If you have access to an editing software tool like Photoshop, you can change this yourself. To learn how to do so, just check out this article.
