How to Create a Collage for your Itinerary Photo

If you want to add a cover photo to your itinerary or a specific booking type, AXUS will assign one image per booking segment.

To add multiple images or a collaged type photo, we recommend sites like PhotoJoiner or Canva.

These sites are excellent tools to help you create collage images that are one downloadable image file, used to represent your itinerary (via the GEAR icon "Edit Itinerary") or a single booking. 

 

Unsplash is a great site to find "freely usable images." Just be careful as the photos may be quite large. (It would be good to have some type of photo editor where you can reduce the image size.)

 

PHOTOJOINER

Head to COLLAGE.

The next step is to grab images.

To upload the photos, highlight the images and click OPEN.

(The images will appear on the right side.)

Drag and drop the images one by one into each space.

Once you have a photo in each box, click SAVE.

It will show you a preview of the collage.

Right click SAVE IMAGE AS or choose the DOWNLOAD PHOTO button.

Go to Axus and find your itinerary.

(You don't need to click inside the itinerary, since you're just editing the image at the itinerary level.)

ON OUR ROADMAP:

Build a feature/image space which will allow for multiple photos to be represented within one booking

Photo Library where you can save your own photos

 

REMINDER: 

Text fields are meant for text only content. If you embed a picture into one of these fields, it could cause issues generating the itinerary on the client perspective.

We recommend keeping image links tied to the image designated section of the booking. 

 

TIP:

If you want to show multiple photos of a resort, embed a hyperlink in the notes section of a hotel booking that will link them to a picture album on the resort website.

How do I embed a hyperlink?
