There are many ways to add a whole album of photos to DAKboard, but if you're looking to add a single photo or a logo to your screen, here are some simple ways to do so. 

Use one of the Supported Photo Sources:

DAKboard works with many online photo-sharing sites. Using one of these, create a new folder or album, then add your single photo or logo to that album. Next, link your DAKboard account with the photo-sharing site, and in the DAKboard settings, select the album to which the photo has been uploaded.

We recommend using Dropbox, Google Drive, Google Photos, or Microsoft OneDrive when setting up a single photo or Logo. 

NOTE: Set the photo change time to 1 hour or slower if your photo will not change frequently. This will help save on bandwidth. 

Upload the photo to Imgur:

Imgur is a free photo hosting service that works well with DAKboard. Head over to Imgur and then click the New Post button in the upper left:

Next, choose the photo to upload from your computer or drag/drop the photo into your browser. After selecting the photo to upload, you'll be redirected to a page showing your photo. Hover over the photo and click the Copy Link button: 

Now, back in your DAKboard account, select a custom screen to edit, click the Add a Block button, and choose the URL block under the Photos section: 

Resize or move the new block to the desired size and location. Then edit the block and paste in the copied URL:

Lastly, add  .jpg   to the end of the pasted URL. This is required! Click Save Changes and preview the screen to see your photo or logo. 

Media Library with Plus or Pro:

The third alternative to this method is to use the Media Library, available with the Plus or Pro subscription levels. With the Media Library, you can upload Photos and GIFs to your DAKboard account and select a single Photo or GIF, multiple Photos and GIFs in a random order, or even play all your Photos and GIFs in an order of your choosing. See our article Media Library Photo Block (Plus and Pro Subscriptions) for more details on this option.
