We swap up to 5 per year at no cost. Additional picture changes incur a $10 per picture setup charge.

Add pictures one-at-a time... each picture you add costs $15 ($10 is for setup and $5 is the annual fee). For example, if you added 2 pictures, your cost would be $30 initially and $10 at each annual ad subscription.

How to change / add pictures:
After closing this window, you will be back on the "Send Pictures" page.  When you click the "Go" button to send pictures as email attachments, your own email program will open, ready for you to attach pictures.  Please be clear about what you wish to do.  The first picture (top left of your page) is #1.  Then pictures are counted from left to right and moving down the page and on to second page (if you have more than one page displaying pictures) as #2, #3, #4 etc.
Your instructions should read like:  "Replace # 1 with new picture of beach, add new picture of living room in position #3 and move old picture #3 to second page" etc.  Optional... better still to describe new pictures with actual file names!

For Best Results
"A picture is worth a thousand words"  (and probably several thousand dollars!)
To get the most out of your web page, you will need to provide good pictures

PICTURES FOR GOOD BASIC 3 PICTURE PRESENTATION
For best presentation...a nice exterior shot, one of the interior showing a spacious area (usually the living room) and one of the water or pool... or something that says "This is the Gulf Coast and it is beautiful !"

MORE PICTURES...BETTER RESULTS...It's a given... more pictures show more of your property and the prospective tenant will be more likely to rent your property if he or she can gain a feeling of familiarity.

Note: exterior shots taken at about 10:00 AM or 3:00 PM on a sunny day are best. Avoid shooting around noon; shots taken under the glaring mid-day sun tend to make colors look washed out.


Getting Technical
If you are sending pictures attached to an email:
for best results, send your images in jpg or jpeg format, at 100 dpi or better. Images in 'landscape' orientation work best when 4.5" wide x 3" high. Images in 'portrait' orientation work best when 3" wide x 4.5 inches high.

Other picture sizes...
Our other standard sizes are: 3.25" x 3.25" (square), 6" x 2" (wide) or 2.75" x 4" (tall). In all cases, resolution should be at least 100 dpi. If you have odd sizes...no problem, we will make adjustments as needed.

Not sure about all this?
Don't worry...just send what you've got & we'll work with it!
