To upload a photo, select the category or Folder into which the image will be uploaded. Click the Green Plus sign to start uploading. Once the upload interface is launched, we can upload imagery in several ways.
Images can be resized on upload by choosing the Resize on Upload button.
You may also choose the the folder destination from the Upload Interface by using the Category drop down.
Images can be Dragged and Dropped from your local system into the upload interface. This will not work with older browsers. If you are using an older browser, please use the next step by adding imagery via the Select options.
Images can also be added by using the Select buttons.
Once the desired images are added to the upload interface, the upload will occur automatically.
The upload interface will show a ‘completed’ notification, and there is an option to then upload more imagery or ‘X’ out of the interface.
Once images are uploaded to the Image Explorer, they may need to be resized and cropped to meet the appropriate image dimensions used throughout the website. Image dimensions are provided after the website comes out of coding.
To edit images, right click on the image and choose Edit Image. This will launch an image editor interface window. From here you have a variety of tools available to manipulate your image.
First, the image will need to be resized to reach the desired width or height. Open the Resize button to begin. The Maintain Aspect Ratio option is checked by default, which should remain enabled as this ensures that when the image is resized the appropriate aspect ratio is kept.
Change either the width box (on the left) or the height box (on the right) to get as close to the desired size. When the width box size is changed, the height box will change accordingly to the appropriate aspect ratio and vice versa. Once the desired height or width is reached, Click Apply.
Next, Click Crop the image to meet the desired dimensions if Resizing did not meet the proper dimensions. With the Crop option, select a new aspect ratio to the desired dimensions. A box will show laying over the image. Drag the box around the image to choose the portion of the image you would like to keep. The opaque areas of the image will then be cropped out. Click Apply to complete the Crop.
To Save the image in the Image Explorer, click Save at the top left of the screen.
An option to Overwrite or Save as new prompt.
Overwite: this will replace the original image in the Image Explorer. Not recommended, as it’s best to keep the original dimensions so the image may be edited again at a later time.
Save as new: this will keep the original image and save the new editing image separately. Note: both images will have the same name once added in the Image Explorer. The images will need to be renamed in order to tell the edited and original image apart.
Once the image is saved into the Image Explorer, the browser may need to be refreshed to see the image. Rename the image if desired, by right clicking on the image > View Properties. Enter the desired name and click save.
