The first image you’ll see shows the logo. The maximum size for logos on Chicago is 305 pixels wide by 90 pixels tall. You can add the logo you want to use by going to Site Settings > Site Info. Learn more about uploading a logo here.
The slideshow images are the largest images that can appear on your homepage, so it's important to get the most out of this valuable space. The maximum size for slideshow images is 1600 pixels wide by 500 pixels tall. Learn more about adding slideshow images here.
Tip: Our customers are most successful with using images of homes, scenes, and landscapes without any text on them where a little cropping on the top or bottom wouldn’t have a huge impact.
It's best to stay as close to these recommended dimensions as possible. If the image is too small, it will look blurry and pixelated, but if the image is too large, then parts of it will be cut off or it could slow down your site's loading speed.
