    Add a custom page to the Lumina Spark Portrait


    Click on the page icon with the green cross in the right-hand panel.
    Option 1 – Enter text and upload an image
    1. Add a title, text and choose where to position your image. Each field is optional.
    2. Select an image to upload.
    3. Click Save and Continue.

    Option 2 – Fill the page with a single image

    Alternatively, you can upload a single image that fills the entire page.

    Use your own image editing software (you must use your own software to create the image, this is not a feature within the Lumina system) to position text and multiple images in your preferred layout. This gives you total flexibility to design a page exactly as you want it. Save the image with the following format:

    • Dimensions (exact): 525 pixel width, 780 pixel height
    • File size (maximum): 2mb
    • File format: jpeg, jpeg, png or gif

    Upload the image, then press Save and Continue.

     

    Once you are happy with your custom page, click Save and you will see a preview of how the page will look. Click Back to Wizard. The custom page will appear at the bottom of the right column with the excluded pages. You will need to click on the page to add it to the bottom of the left column where the included pages are. You can then rearrange the custom page to appear in your preferred order, in the Lumina Spark Portrait.

     

     

     

    If you want to customise only the Lumina Spark portrait page order, you can skip the first part of the customisation process.

    To follow the complete customisation process, please follow the full instructions above.
