Pictures are a very important part of your Intervac listing. They show what your home and neighborhood is like and they present your family to our Intervac community.
There are 4 categories of photos in your listing:
All of these pictures show in your picture slideshow, following precisely that order: Home, Neighbourhood, Family, Lifestyle. If you have more than one listing, the photos in the Family and Lifestyle categories will show in all your listings.
Please note that when logged in you can view all the photos other members have on their slideshow. If you are not logged in, you will be considered as a Visitor (and not a Member) and for that reason only be able to view the ones selected by the member as Members & Visitors photos.
Adding more photos to your Intervac listing
Adding more photos is a great way to provide more information to potential exchangers and increases the chances of you getting the home exchange you want.

You can add new photos by clicking the Upload photos button, you can add new pictures in the chosen category.
Please note photos need to be no bigger than 10MB. If your photo is bigger, we recommend that you use an online resizer tool to reduce its size to a maximum of 10MB (that is 10240 KB or less).
You can reorder the photos within the category by using the 4-headed arrow on the right and dragging the photo to where you want it.
