EZWeb Editor - How to Insert an Image
Posted by Ryan Ross on 03 May 2011 02:04 PM
EZWeb has always made things simple. From Inserting a Hyperlink to creating a Photo Album, EZWeb has made common web tasks simple and easy to do. Keeping with that tradition, has always been the ability to Insert your own Images into your pages and articles. If there are two things every EZWeb user should know, it's Inserting a Hyperlink, and Inserting an Image. We've already covered hyperlinks, so let's visit the images arena and take a look at the options and tools available in EZWeb.
Uploading an image - In order to use your own images in EZWeb, you'll first need to upload them to your Image/File Center. Please refer to this Tutorial on how to upload an image: Back to Basics: Hyperlinks and Images. Alternatively, you are welcome to use the Stock Images folder which is already available in your Image/File Center, and includes many free images for you to use.
Inserting an image via Content - The most versatile way to insert an image to a Page, Article, or Box is to use the Insert/Edit Image Wizard. This tool can be found in your editor tool bar. It is located in the top row with a yellow background and appears to have a mountain with a sun in it.
TIP: If you ever need to update or define any of the attributes mentioned on step 5, you can easily revisit the Image Properties for a given image by Right-Clicking on the image in the Content section, and selecting Image Properties.
Alternative Text - Also known as "ALT" text, specifies the text to be substituted for the image if the image cannot be displayed for whatever reason. Some reasons include slow connection, an error in the src attribute, or if the user uses a screen reader. EZWeb does not require an ALT attribute, but it is highly recommend you add one.
Inserting an image via Layout/Images - A simplified version of inserting an image can be accomplished using the Images section of a Page or Article in conjunction with the Layout section. For pages and articles, a layout can be defined to place a single image. Layouts for pages and articles are similar to the Align attribute above. Layouts include Left Picture, Right Picture, Center Picture, and No Picture.
Define a Layout of a Page or Article by clicking Layout. Select the desired option, and Save your changes. If you select a layout with an Image, select Images from the left hand menu. A preview of your page/article displays with the image you selected, or a purple box if you haven't already select an image. In either case, to change the image, simply click on the image or purple box. Just like the above instructions, navigate to the image you would like to use, and click on it. You are returned to the Preview section with your image included. Remember to Save your changes.
