It is important to understand the difference between the two image types used within Brand Toolbox: ‘Guideline display visuals’ and ‘Image library’ images.
Display visuals appear within general guidelines pages and are used to clarify content, show example steps and to dress the information provided on the page. They are generally low resolution images that appear on the page, much like the image that appears below.
These images reside in the Media > Guideline display visuals section of the administrator backoffice.

Image library images appear in the Image (or Photo) library. These images are generally high resolution and approved for use across communications.
The library contains an advanced search engine, allowing you to search for images by image number/name, category, description, date, keyword metadata, photographer, colour and location.
Note: The Image library only accepts JPG files. Files must be converted to JPG before adding to the library. Photoshop (PSD) and EPS files are considered document assets and should be uploaded to the Asset library as artwork or document files.
The Image library structure
It is important to understand the fundamental structure (hierarchy) of the Image library and the image and folder types within it.
Image categories and sub categories are defined in the ‘Content’ section.
Brand Toolbox can automatically and sequentially number images, so there is no need to manually create them.
Images are uploaded and modified in the ‘Media’ section.
