  6. Click Save when finished.

If there is an existing placeholder image and you want to change it, follow the steps below:

  1. Click on the desired catalog.

  2. Click the Refresh (Refresh icon). This opens the Select File window.

  3. Drag & Drop to Upload a new placeholder image (or click Select File and browse).

    Upload a new placeholder image to replace the current one.
