Adding an inline image in an InCopy article in Content Station 9
When editing an InCopy article in the Multi-Channel Text Editor of Content Station, inline images can be added.
Before you start
In order to be able to add an inline image, make sure of the following:
- The article is part of a Dossier
- Any images you want to add are also part of the Dossier to which the article is added
Images are added from the Images pane. Depending on the version of Content Station, the working of the Images pane is as follows:
|For version 9.8.11 or lower||For version 9.8.12 or higher|
|The Images pane is only shown when opening the article from within the Dossier.||The Images pane is always shown, regardless of the location in Content Station from where it is opened.|
|The Images pane only shows the images that are part of the Dossier from which the article is opened.||
When the article is opened from within a Dossier, the Images pane only shows the images that are part of that Dossier.
When the article is opened outside of a Dossier, the Images pane shows all images of all Dossiers that the article is part of.
Inserting an image
To insert an image, simply drag it from the Images pane to a location in the text.
Cropping the image
Info: This feature requires Content Station 9.8.6 or higher.
If needed, the inline image can be cropped. For more information, see Cropping and resizing an image in Content Station 9.
Image preview size versus image publish size
Inline images are displayed at a maximum size of 250x250 pixels. This size is not related though to the size in which the image is published.
The publish size can be verified (and if needed, changed), by following these steps:
Note: When using Content Station 9.8.6 or higher, you might want to control this size by using the Cropping tools.
Step 1. Select the inline image in the editing pane of the editor and click the information icon that appears in the bottom left corner.
The Image Publish Properties dialog box appears.
Figure: The Image Publish Properties dialog box can be used for changing the size in which the image is published.
Step 2. In the Image Height and Image Width fields, change the size as needed.
Step 3. Click Save.
