Adding images to your website is recommended, as it adds variety to your page. You can choose to place an image created by the IUP photographer or add an image to the library yourself. IUP images can be found in the Gallery subfolder in the Photographer folder.
There are two ways to add an image to your page: under the Content tab or Metadata tab:
Always double-click the image title or the image itself.
Never choose the little yellow box.
Image file names that contain punctuation will not show up properly on the website!
Be certain the file name does not contain commas, apostrophes, etc. before uploading the image.
IUP webpages look best when you use images that are correctly sized to fit them.
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.
Some of the full-width images at the very top of pages are added through the Metadata tab.
Note: Items added to a page’s Metadata will not appear, even in preview mode, until the page is actually published.
To add an image through the metadata, follow this process:
