Patron images can be imported to enhance the visual appearance of patrons in Circulation and User screens.

Preparing An Import File

Images Recommendations: 

  • Recommended size - 20 - 50 KB.
  • Recommended format - jpg or png. Note: Bitmap images should not be used. 
  • Recommended dimensions - 300 x 400 pixels.
  • Image layout - portrait.

Note: Individual patron images must be named using the patron's Admin ID - naming pattern is adminid.jpg.

Zipping Images Using a Windows Computer:

  1. Using Windows Explorer navigate to the folder containing the images you wish to import.
    1. Open the folder
    2. Highlight just the images to be imported. Note: Do not include any folders at any level.
    3. Right click on the highlighted images.
    4. Choose 'Send to > Compressed (zipped) folder'.
  2. Ensure your zipped file is less than 32MB - make multiple zipped files if necessary.

  Note: Other third party zip programs may not produce a reliable zip file for this import process.

Note: Best practice is to prepare a trial import file with a small number of images to become familiar with the process.
