Why do I need photos?
We use partner photos frequently in our marketing efforts at Visit Spokane for new content featuring seasonal things to do, places to stay, entertainment, events and so much more. Photos also get used for our email campaigns, blog, social media, on our website, in print and presentations to meeting professionals. This is why it is important for us to have good photos. In fact, when we receive good photos from you, we will usually find a way to use them!
Where will my photo show up?
Your partnership with Visit Spokane comes with a web profile that we call a listing. You can have up to six photos (per category) and a logo along with your tailored listing description that looks like this:
Additionally, your listing shows up in a list with other properties. A good sharp photo will make your listing stand out:

A side note about file formats:
There are many different types of photos. The easiest way to find your picture format (if it is not in the title extension, ex: yourphoto.jpg is a JPEG photo) is to change your view settings in your file browser window. If you select detail view, the type column will tell you what your file type is:
When sending us a photo, a JPG file CAN NOT BE EXPANDED, so it is imperative that the photo is the maximum size available and not copied from your website (unless it is already very large on your website). For logos some files are better than others. If you have a piece of artwork with these file formats, you do not need to change a thing. Simply send us the file!
