How do I update our main image and team images?

I would like to update the main image at the top of our site and our team images. How do I do this?

REACH offers different Theme Choices.  The default theme (as of October 2019) is the REACH  Quartz Theme.  
(The default theme before October 2019 is the REACH Lattes Themes.  Much earlier accounts may be on the REACH Default Base Theme).

For information on the Quartz Theme including Hero Images and Team Images Updates - please see our support article: Quartz Theme Overview


-- Lattes And Earlier Themes --

To update the images on the home page; for example, the hero picture at the top of the site and your team images, you will need to made adjustments to your Active REACH Theme.  

Basic HTML knowledge is needed when making any REACH Theme updates. Here's how:

- Go to Settings > Themes
- Click the Edit button for your Active Theme

To make changes to your Home Page on the Lattes Theme, you want to edit your Index Template.  

To change the initial image (on the Lattes Theme, it is the image of the hands) that displays under your Welcome Message, at the bottom of the page, upload the background image you want to use under Assets. For the background image, we suggest an image with the width of 2400px.  

Once uploaded, you will need to take the name of the file uploaded and update your Index Template code. For example, if you uploaded an image named index_image.jpg, on line 2 of the template, you will replace lattes-web.jpg with index_image.jpg.  

The line to update is shown below with the name you need to update bolded:
<header style="background-image: url({% asset_url_tag | lattes-web.jpg %});">
would change to:
<header style="background-image: url({% asset_url_tag | index_image.jpg %});">

You would do the same for the Team Member Images. Upload the images at the bottom of the page under Assets. Once uploaded, you will use the file names to change the images. Note: the Team area starts around line 328 of the REACH Default Lattes Theme.

Tell Me More Link:
You can also update the text and link of the Tell Me More button that is part of the header.  
To update, in the Lattes Theme, you would make your updates to the link and/or text on line 8:
<a href="#about" class="page-scroll btn btn-xl">Tell Me More</a>

Link: update href="#about" to the link of your choice
For example href="/sponsorships/"
Text: Update the Tell Me More to the text of your choice
For example View Our Sponsorships
The updated line using the examples would be:
<a href="/sponsorships/" class="page-scroll btn btn-xl">View Our Sponsorships</a>
