Note: this page explains how to place an image on a page of your website. Before being able to do this you must upload the image to a gallery on your website first. To see how to do this see the page about handling pictures in galleries.

This facility allows you to add a picture to your webpage. Pictures are a great way to eliven a page and draw in potential readers. Cradur allows you to add pictures in various sizes, with or without coloured frames, positioned left, right or center of the page. Furthermore Cradur optimizes the download time for your page by resizing the images before they are transmitted.

The following example shows the screen for adding and editing image details:   

If you are adding a new image to the page, the screen looks like this:

Choose/Change Image

Clicking on the "Choose" button (or "Change" on an existing image) brings up a screen like the following in a separate window:

Gallery: gardens


Change Gallery:


You can change gallery by clicking on the drop-down list at the top.

Click on an image to select and close the select window. If you change your mind about selecting another image click the cancel button.

After choosing an image, the screen will look similar to this:

Frame Colour:
Width in Pixels:
Link to:

Position

Drop-down list: left, centre, right.

The centre option places the image in the middle of the page, text is above and below it.

The left and right options place the image left/right respectively, text defined after the image then flows round the image on the right/left respectively.

[To break the flow insert a New Line element on the page.]

Border

Drop-down list : none, edge, frame.

  • none shows a picture without any sort of border.
  • edge puts a thin line around the edge of the picture.
  • frame puts a frame around the picture.

Here are examples showing the same picture with the three options:

Frame Colour

The colour is only relevant if the picture is framed. The frame is simulated on the editing screen (see above) and the colour is also shown on the "change" button.

Clicking the change button brings up the colour-picker screen in a separate window.

Width in Pixels

You can choose the width of the image itself (not counting the frame or edge) in pixels (dot on the screen). A normal lap-top screen is about 1200 pixels wide (but this can vary significantly). The best thing to do is to try different widths until you are satisfied with the result.

Link

To make the picture into a linc to another web page (i.e. you go to another page when you click on the picture) use this field.

You have to give the URL you want to link to. The URL is the 'address' of the web page and will look something like "http://www.cradur.com".

The easiest way to get the URL is to go to the web page you want to link to, press the 'F6' button, and 'copy and paste' the address from there.

The picture on the left is a linc to the Cradur.com website - try clickin on it.
