Asset Bank allows for images to be featured on the homepage. Featured assets can be selected by administrators when visiting an asset view page and selecting More > Edit On Homepage
Then simply crop & zoom to select the perfect size for your featured asset
Featuring multiple assets is possible - Asset Bank will rotate through the ones you've selected each time the homepage is visited or refreshed.
An overview of all assets currently featured can be viewed by navigating to Admin > Content > Featured and clicking the 'Managed Featured Assets' link.
To remove an asset from this set, click on it to be taken to the asset view page then choose More > Remove From Homepage
Promoting your assets is a way of showcasing them on the homepage in the dedicated "Promoted Items" image strip. To promote an asset, simple check the 'Is Promoted?' checkbox when editing an asset.
You can also click on the 'View all' link to see all assets that have been promoted by an administrator.
Users will only see the images that they have the relevant permission to see, whether they are Featured or Promoted.
There is a setting in Admin > Content > Featured > 'Update the featured asset visibility settings' that will allow you to set the Featured asset as 'visible' to all users of the system, regardless of the group permissions that would normally apply.
