How to Change your Main Photo

First, what exactly is your “main photo”?

It is the photo on your listing that shows when the page loads and in the search results.

The best main photos display a clear and attractive view of your home or its best feature (a swimming pool, the ocean view from your balcony). Think of your main photo as an invitation to prospective exchange partners.

The sun is shining and you have been outside with your camera and taken great photos of your home. Pick the best one and here is all you need to do:

  2. You will land on the “Main Settings” page and that’s right where you want to be.
  3. Scroll to the section titled: Main Photo and click the Upload new main photo button to choose the image you want to upload from your computer.


Using a Photo from Your Listing

Member Questions

I see you have a caption on your main photo. How can I add one too?

Clicking the Edit Caption link will open this little dialog. Just type in the text you want for your caption but keep it under 128 characters. That’s the limit.
