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 that:

  • The article is part of a Dossier
  • The images that you want to add are added to the same Dossier in which the article is placed
  • You open the article within the Dossier

Inserting an image

To insert an image, simply drag it from the Image pane to a location in the text.

Adding an inline image to an article

Tips:

  • Use the Filter in the Images pane to only show images for a particular Publication Channel
  • To see a large preview of an image, select it in the Images pane and press the spacebar (the window that appears can be resized)

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.

Step 2. In the Image Height and Image Width fields, change the size as needed.

Step 3. Click Save.

Troubleshooting

The Images pane does not appear or it does not contain any images

Make sure that:

  • The article that you are editing is part of a Dossier
  • The images that you want to add are added to the same Dossier in which the article is placed
  • You open the article within the Dossier
