Image size suggestion

  1. Under Advanced Tools, click the Settings tab.
  2. In the drop-down list, select Checkpoint and click Go.
  3. In the left pane, click Check In/Out Colors.
  4. Under Express Check In/Out Global Image, click Browse .
  5. In the window, navigate to and select the image, then click Open.
  6. To preview how the image will appear on check-in stations, click Preview.
  7. Click Apply to save your changes.
