What image size should I use?

Automatically change an image to fit the sidebar area:

There is an item to select when uploading an image called Sidebar Image – auto 240 wide. If you select that item when you upload a picture, it will automatically change the size so that it is 240pixels wide. This is about the size you need for sidebar pictures. Keep in mind that if you have a SMALLER image, it will not be a good idea to use it as it will stretch to 240pixels.

Overwrite an existing file:

If you want to OVERWRITE an existing document or other file, choose the option 'File – overwrite old file' from the New menu when you upload the file. The new file must have the same name as the original file.
