Great news folks! Now you can add custom thumbnail images to papers. The image will replace the standard gray or blue Paper.li "P" on the newsstand and across social platforms when it's shared.
Here's how to upload yours:
1. Go to your Paper Settings > Appearance > Branding
2. Upload an image in "Paper thumbnail". Recommended size: 268 x 181 pixel
3. Save your changes.
Please note: Landscape format is required.

For sharing across networks please note:
Changes will usually be reflected with the next automatic update of your paper
Some services can take up to 7 days before presenting your new image. This is due to the expiration set on their image cache and we unfortunately can't influence this.
If you paste your URL into a status update field, depending on the social platform you are on, you may need to toggle between the gray standard P and your cover image. Once you select the cover image and save, it will be displayed.
If you are sharing your paper via the standard share icons found under the SHARE tab, (such as Twitter, G+, FB) your thumbnail will be automatically identified and displayed.
