The Image Element allows you to place static images within a content area to be displayed on your website. We recommend using JPEG or PNG image file types.
After the Image Element is placed into a content area, you will be presented with the initial Image Tab. Let's examine some of the elements found here:
Search Images: Conduct a search of all images within your File Manager. Can be done using file names or keyword tags associated with the images.
Folders: This is the folder structure created within your File Manager Creating separate folders is a helpful way to keep your images organized.
To expand or collapse sub-folders, click on a triangle to the left of a yellow folder icon. To create new folders or move existing items between folders, visit your File Manager from the Dashboard.
Images: Click on an image to view sizes, detailed meta data, or to select it as your image to be placed.
Drag files here to upload: If an image you would like to place is not located in your File Manager, you can upload it by dragging the image to this area, or by clicking on the green button and selecting the image to upload. Once uploaded, the image will appear. NOTE: At this time, you cannot use the drag files to upload method while using Internet Explorer 9 or later.
Save Changes: Once your image has been selected, click this button to place it on the web page.
Once your image is uploaded and selected, a preview of the image will appear along side with other sub tabs.
