I can’t see the details for an offer code I’d like to use?

When I add a photo to the site it seems to crop it out – how can I get my photo to display properly?
Photos are cropped to a square size, so we recommend that you resize your photo/flyer or give it a white border so that the image sits neatly within the square.
I’ve loaded my photos but they don’t seem to appear with the notice?
When you add your photo you need to check that the blue loading bar has completed loading and your photo appears clearly in the preview section. If it has not loaded please check it’s not over our limit of 4MB. If so, please reduce the file size and try again.
How do I re-order my images so that the one I want to be displayed with my notice is shown?
Just remember to upload your lead photo first and wait for it to finish loading before you add further images. If you have already added the other images you will need to go back and edit your notice, remove the photos and re-upload with your lead photo first.
