The ME Online ePortfolio can be customised to include banners, images and other design elements using 'embed code'.
To add a banner to your eportfolio you need to have access to an online image URL that is licensed for public use. This may be a picture or graphic of your own, a Creative Commons (CC) or Public Domain (CC0) image.
Use this Creative Commons image search to locate a suitable online image - or watch this video on how to locate Flickr Creative Commons images.
If you have your own banner image you need to upload it and get the embed code.
Flickr Method: Creative Commons ImageSTEP 1: Locate the image you wish to use (ensuring it is licensed for re-use).
Select the 'Share Icon'.
STEP 2: Select 'Embed', choose a size and then copy the code.
STEP 3: Paste the embed code into the 'About Me' 'Summary Paragraph' section of your eportfolio.

Google Blog Method: Own Banner ImageAnother way to do this is to create a Google Blog and upload the image to a post.
STEP 1: Select the picture icon and upload your banner image.
STEP 2: Switch to HTML code and copy the image URL (from https:// to .JPG as shown)
NB You can copy the entire section of code if you don't want to use the image as a banner.
Copy and paste this code into Notepad:
Copy and paste the IMAGE-URL into the last line.
STEP 4: Copy and paste the last line into the 'About Me' 'Summary Paragraph' section of your eportfolio.
Save and Publish your eportfolio and Preview.
