Adding an image to a page

It’s easy to insert an image into the Word Processor.

1. Position the cursor where you'd like to insert it click 'Insert/Edit Image'

In the Word Processor, click in the position of the text where you'd like to insert the image and click the 'Insert Image' icon.

2. Select (or upload) the image

The Image Properties box will open. Click the 'Browse Server' button. If the image has been previously uploaded to the Assets Manager you just need to select it using the 'Select an existing image' tab. Alternatively ou may upload a new image directly into the Word Processor. To do that select the 'Upload a new one' tab and locate it on your computer. The new image will be selected as well as automatically added to the Assets Manager.

Adding an image

You can then enter other options for the image. For example, you can align it to the right so the text will be placed to its left and wrap around it. It is also good practice for Search Engine Optimization (SEO) as well as accessibility purposes, to add an alternative text (also known as <Alt> tag). To do that, simply type a short descrition of the image into the 'Alternative Text' field. When you're done, click 'OK'.

The image is then inserted into the text.


Avoid resizing images manually in the Word Processor

Add your images already in the dimensions they should appear on the page. Manually resizing large images in the editor will make them appear distorted on phones, and the page take a long tie to load. Either resize a large image in a photo editing software program like Photoshop or similar before adding it to the Assets Manager, or use the free PicMonkey editor available there.
