Set a padlet's cover image

What is a cover image?

The cover image is the preview of your padlet when it's shared on other padlets (padlet-within-a-padlet) or on social media. The default preview is typically the first image on your padlet page. If there is none, we pick the wallpaper.

If you don't like the assigned cover image, you can choose your own!

To set a cover image,

  • Select an image from the padlet.
  • Click the vertical three dot ellipsis button (...) on the top right of the post.
  • Click Set as padlet cover. The image you choose will then be the preview for when you share a padlet link in another padlet.

How do I check the cover image of a padlet?

From the sidebar, click the three dot ellipsis button (...) on the right side of the screen. Choose the Details option. That'll show you a summary of the current padlet, including the cover image.

The recommended size for cover images is 500x300 px or as close as you can get to a 5:3 aspect ratio.
