How to upload an image

You can upload an image very easily. Place the cursor into the cell, where you would like the image to appear. Then click on the "Insert Image" icon Image  in the text controls toolbar. This will bring up the Image File Manager where you can upload a new image from your hard drive.  (For further information, please see this tutorial.)

 

Once the image has been selected you will be presented with three cropping options before upload takes place.  These are "Don't Crop", "Predefined" and"Free Selection".

 

Don't Crop

As the name suggests, this will upload your image without cropping.

 

Predefined

A template will come loaded with predefined cropping ratios, for example 1:1 for a square crop, or 16:9 for a wide letterbox format.  You can also create your own cropping ratios which will be saved.  This is a valuable tool if you want to ensure multiple images are cropped with the same dimensions.

 

Free Selection

This option allows you to arbitrarily crop an image to any dimension.
