Adding, Editing and Deleting Facility Photos on SpareFoot

Follow

Your MySpareFoot account allows you to upload new photos, delete old ones, and to set a profile image for your facility listing.

NOTE: This article is for users who haven't integrated their SpareFoot account with web-based storage management software (like SiteLink Web Edition, Centershift, etc.). The interface is slightly different for integrated facilities and is covered in this article.

Step 1: Log in to your MySpareFoot account.

 Need Help Logging In?

Just go to www.mysparefoot.com from your internet browser. When you head to MySpareFoot.com, you'll see one of these two screens:

Step 3: To add photos, click the blue "Upload Photos" button.

We recommend at least 3 - 5 high-quality photos of your facility for optimal listing performance on our network. Of course, 5 is not the maximum - you can add as many photos as you like! That said, too many photos of varying quality can actually hurt your listing's performance, so we advise aiming for quality over quantity. 

When it comes to size, your photos should ideally be between 1 - 3 MB in size. The maximum size is 5 MB per photo. To avoid appearing stretched or off center, your photos should be formatted within a 4 x 3 size ratio. SpareFoot supports PEG, PNG and GIF photo formats. 

Screen_Shot_2017-08-18_at_2.56.50_PM.pngRemember, our terms of service prohibits photos that display your facility's direct phone number or website. If you would like us to edit or upload a photo for you, simply send an email to photos@sparefootsupport.com with your facility name, address and the photo attached. We'll get it added to your listing right away!

Step 4: Upload your image(s)

Keep in mind that your photos will display in the order you upload them. To change the order of your photos, simply delete them and re-upload in the order you want them to appear. 

Your photos should publish to your listing within a minute. If you've just uploaded a new photo and don't see it on your listing, wait about 30 seconds and then refresh your screen by pressing the F5 key on your keyboard. 

Step 5: Set your profile image.

Profile images are the main "cover" photo customers will see when viewing your facility listing in SpareFoot's search results so you'll want to choose a photo that best represents your facility and makes the strongest first impression. Though you can select any photo you'd like, most facilities choose to use a high-quality landscape photo of their property's storefront. We also recommend sticking to photos of your actual property; logos, generic stock photos or photos of employees tend to be less appealing to customers, and may result in your listing getting passed over by a potential customer.

To set your profile photo, simply scroll to the image you'd like, hover over it, and then click "Make this the Profile image". You may also follow these steps to "Delete" any outdated photos or photos you might have uploaded accidentally.

Once you've set your profile photo, it may take up to 15 minutes to publish to our website. Here's what your profile photo looks like to storage-seeking customer's searching on our site:
