To display images on a page, they must first be uploaded to the Media section.
Unlike many other computer applications, a web page does not embed images. Instead, it links to the image stored on the web or media server. This means that if you delete an image from the Media section, it will also disappear from the page. The Working with images and files page outlines how to first upload your images to the Media section.
Note that unless renamed by your administrator, your site stores most of its usable guidelines images in the Media > Guideline display visuals folder.
Image dimensions are automatically included in the source code when linking/adding an image. If the image is larger than the column width, it will be constrained to the column width (usually 630px or 300px, depending on whether you are using a 1col or 2col template). To decrease an image in size, select it and diagonally drag the image handles down in size. The image will maintain its aspect ratio.
^ For a variety of reasons, some visitors will not be able to see the images on your site. People who are visually impaired can ‘read’ web pages using various accessibility tools, however, images are often difficult to ‘read’. So that these groups of people can understand what an image represents, it is important to provide a text option where the image is described in words.
Note: Though we allow you to upload an image from your computer directly to a page, we prefer you first upload images to the Media section. This allows you to better manage the images into a more intuitive folder structure.
If you want to delete an image from the page, simply select the image and press Delete on your keyboard. The image disappears from the page but is not deleted from the Media library.
