WW 2017 WW: Put a picture of your world in the popular worlds list

Put a picture of your world in the popular worlds list
Cybalounge is designed to host multiple web-worlds, like a virtual world grid.  That is a good plan for user-built web-worlds, because users can work together in a multi-world aggregation.  And the worlds can share traffic in the location list.  Here is how to put in a thumbnail to show off your world.
I needed to put a new picture
in the location list

          More after the break

          Make the picture

          • Cybalounge does not have the picture-taking feature of the older virtual worlds.
          • But any screen-capture software will do.  I used Jing.
          • To fit as thumbnail, I need something approximately square.
          • But the system will automatically resize it as needed.
          • Jing saves in .png format, which makes bigger files than I want.
          • So I used the Gimp to convert the image to .jpg  format.  
          • The image must be under 256 kb.  
          • The .jpg will probably be okay, but i could use The Gimp to reduce it.
          • Both of these are free.
          • Put the image file in the folder where your computer normally looks for images.

          Upload as thumbnail

          • Your location is an inventory item.
          Your location in your inventory
          • Find your location in your inventory.
          • Click your location to select it.  
          • Click Manage (bottom of panel) to open Manage Item panel
           Manage Item panel

          • Click the Choose File bar to open the folder where your computer looks for images.
          • Click the file name to load it in the thumbnail place.
          • Save your work.
