How to Add an Image to Your Page, but are specific to IUP Stock Photography.
Adding images to your website is recommended, as it adds variety to your page.
There are two ways to add an image to your page: using the metadata and using the Library feature.
Use the metadata if the image is the main artwork for your page, and you want it to span the entire width of your page. The full-size image will display directly beneath the headline. You do not have control over size or placement using the metadata.
Note: Items added to a page’s metadata will not appear, even in preview mode, until the page is actually published.
Use the Library if the image is only half the width of your page, or if you want to control where in your content block the image displays. The Library feature gives you more control than the metadata over the size and placement of your image.
(Known issue: Images added this way may not appear on the webpage due to an Ektron
glitch. If you’ve done everything correctly, but the image just won’t
show up on the published page, you’ll need to add the image into the
To add an image through the metadata, follow this process:
Follow this process to insert an image using the Library feature:
Although there is an option to artificially adjust the image’s size, this should be avoided as the image can become pixelated or fuzzy. Remember that
all images must be resized before uploading into Ektron, not from within Ektron. For similar reasons, please do not use the “Edit Image” option, either.
If the image is placed in the wrong location on the page, you will need to delete it and then re-place the image in the correct location. The alignment and alt-text editing process must then be repeated (step 7 above).
To change the image from within the Inspector, click the image so that it is selected. In the Inspector window, click the blue Library icon, located to the right of the “Image Source” field. Choose the appropriate image from the library window. (As always, only double-click
the image filename or the image itself.
Do not double-click on the little yellow box.)
The Inspector also shows what styles are being used in the content. When the Inspector menu is open, placing the cursor within any text will show what styles are applied, plus what other styles are available.
Here’s how to
add a quicklink to an image.
Note: If you forget to make changes to a picture after you have added it to the content block, you can click the picture and then click on the Inspector arrow to display the Image Elements.
If the image is placed in the wrong location on the page, click it once to select it, then right-click and choose “Cut.” Place the cursor at the beginning of the paragraph that you want the image to be next to, and choose “Paste.” You will then need to repeat the aligning process (step 5 above).
