Create a Bumper Image Slide

Image Slides are a great way to add highly visual content to your ViewMedica.

To fit properly within ViewMedica, we suggest the image (jpg or png format) be at least be 1280 pixels wide by 720 pixels high — if you upload your image, our online image editor will help you size and crop.

  1. After logging in to your account dashboard, click on the On-Demand’s Bumpers link. This opens the Bumpers page where you can create either Universal or Individual Bumpers.

  2. For Universal Bumpers, hit the “Change Content” button. For Individual Bumpers, hit the “New Pre-Roll” or “New Post-Roll” button that is in the grey bar for the Individual Pre- and Post-Rolls sections. You have many options here: You want to select the “Create Image Slide” link.

  3. Give the Image Slide a Title. This title will be seen in the ViewMedica menu system if it is placed in a Presentation, but not for Bumpers. Use a descriptive name so you and your patients can easily find it in your ViewMedica menu.

  4. Set the Time on Screen for this Slide. The default time is 10 seconds but some slides may only need 5 seconds. If you have a lot of text, you may need to increase the amount of time it stays up on the screen.

  5. Use one of these three methods for selecting an image to use:
