You can then choose another of the standard cards or you might want to enter the URL for your own card. In this case the Summary photo card was used and we want to use the Photo card instead. To do this we choose the photo card and map the image it displays to the background property of the banner content type. Click the "Save" button at the top of the window to apply the changes.
