Now you can add photos from your smartphone
Here at Expedia, we empower our partners with tools that make it easier for them to manage their business. So, when partners like Mari-Elena Baldwin at Island Spice ask us to make it easier to add, swap, and remove photos while filling in gaps in her photo gallery, we get right on it.
You asked, and we heard you
With the EPC app, you can now identify photo gaps and add, delete, and replace images anytime, anywhere—all from your smartphone. Here’s how:
Identify gaps: The Photo Score page shows you what is missing in your photo gallery. Click the plus signs to upload images. You can also click on any images with low-resolution tags to replace them with higher quality images (it’s best if they are above 2880 pixels).
Addressing photo gallery gaps can help your Quality Score, which can affect your visibility in searches.
Add images anytime, anywhere: You can add photos you’ve already taken from your phone’s photo library. Or, you can take new photos directly with your smartphone camera.
In addition to your property photos, you can also include photos of your customized Points of Interest.
Save time with easy tagging and uploading: Categorize your images quickly with one-touch buttons. This will automatically attach photos to the right room types or amenities, and sort the photos in your gallery on Expedia group sites.
Upload photos directly from your phone to avoid wasting time transferring files to your computer first. Plus, if you lose connection to the Internet, your upload will not be lost. Your photos will continue uploading whenever you re-connect.
Make your listing stand out: Your primary image shows up on search pages and as the first image on your property. It’s your first introduction to a traveler, so aim for one that reveals the unique personality of your property.
Once you’ve chosen a photo that tells your story, click on that photo, and use the Options dropdown to set it as the Primary property photo.
