Step 5 — Image Details

Click on the Browse button to select a suitable image to display on the schedule. Support is provided for all popular image types (BMP, GIF, JPG, PNG, TIF).

Where can you find a suitable image? One thing you can do is navigate to the JW.ORG website and locate the program for the Memorial. Usually this page will have a graphic at the top. You can save that graphic to your PC and select it.

Notes IconWe do not intend to provide any tools to automatically download the images. This is because they are copyrighted material and software should not "scrape" data from the website. So obtaining the image is something you must do manually.

Image information

A slider has been provided for you to specify the width of the image on the schedule. You can select a percentage within the range 50% - 100% and the default is 80% which gives a nice margin on either side. You can adjust the template script if you desire a percentage outside of this range.

Notes IconThe image is displayed from the path you select. So if you delete the image, rename it or move it, it will no longer be visible on the schedule.
