Insert/Edit Images: Image Information

  1. URL: This is the path to your selected image or file. It will automatically fill in when you select an image or file.
  2. BROWSE SERVER: This will open the My Files dialog box, allowing you to select an image or file to insert or edit.
  3. ALTERNATIVE TEXT: This is the text that appears if a user hovers over the image.
  4. WIDTH: This is the width of the image in pixels.
  5. HEIGHT: This is the height of the image in pixels.
  6. LOCK RATIO: The image dimensions are locked by default. This should remain locked if you want your image to resize proportionally upon changing the height or width. For instance, if you just change the height on your image, it will automatically change the width to make the image proportional. Click the lock ratio to unlock the image dimensions. This will allow you to set any value for the height or width without it affecting the other.
  7. RESET SIZE: Should you update the image dimensions and want to set them back to the original settings, click the Reset Size icon to do so.
  8. BORDER: You can place a border around the image. The larger the number you choose, the larger the border.
  9. HSPACE: You can set how much space horizontally you want between an image and text.
  10. VSPACE: You can set how much space vertically you want between an image and text.
  11. ALIGN: Allows you to set how you want the image aligned on the page. Aligning an image right or left is a great way to create the effect of wrapping text around your image.
