Adobe® Contribute® CS3 makes it easy for you to add or delete images on your web pages.

Contribute supports the following file formats:

Image files .gif, .jfif, .jpe, .jpeg, .jpg, and .png

Adding an image to a page

You can use three ways to add an image to your web page:

  • Use the Insert menu or the Image button to add an image from your computer or website.
  • Drag an image from another source to your Contribute draft.
  • Copy and paste an image from another source on your Contribute draft.

Note: If your Contribute administrator has restricted the types of images your user role can insert, you might be able to insert images only from shared assets.

Using the Insert menu or Image button to add images to a page

You can use the Insert menu or Image button in the toolbar to add an image from your computer or website to a page.

You can add images from other sources by dragging them to the page or by copying and pasting them on the page.

To add an image using the Insert menu or Image button:

  1. Place the insertion point in your draft where you want the image to appear.
  2. Do one of the following:
    • Click the Image button in the toolbar.
    • Select Insert > Image.
  3. Select one of the following options from the pop-up menu:
    • From My Computer
    • From Website
    • From Internet
    • From Shared Assets

      Note: If your Contribute administrator has restricted the types of images your user role can insert, you might be able to
      insert images only from shared assets.

  4. Browse to and select the image, and then click the Select button.

    Note: You must select a specific file. You cannot select a folder to insert in a Contribute page.

  5. If the Image Description dialog box appears, enter text to describe the image for users with disabilities or for users whose browsers are set to display text only, and then click OK.

    The image appears in your draft. To make the image web-ready, Contribute reduces large images to the size pre-set
    by the Contribute administrator, if the administrator has enabled image processing for your role.

    Note: If the image you are inserting is from your computer, you can edit the image inline (if your user role has permission to edit inline), but you can’t edit the image in an external application until you publish the draft. For more information about editing, see “Editing an image in Contribute” on page 106.

Dragging images to a page

You can drag an image from another source to your Contribute page.

Note: If your Contribute administrator has restricted the types of images your user role can insert, you might be able to insert images only from shared assets.

You can also add images by using the Insert menu or Image button or by copying and pasting them on the page.

To add an image by dragging:

  1. Reduce the size of the Contribute application window so you can also see the application that contains the image you plan to drag.
  2. In the other application, select the image.
  3. Drag the image to your Contribute draft where you want the image to appear.
  4. If the Image Description dialog box appears, enter text to describe the image for users with disabilities or for users whose their browsers set to display text only, and then click OK.

The image appears in your draft. To make the image web-ready, Contribute reduces large images to the size pre-set by the Contribute administrator, if the administrator has enabled image processing for your role.

Note: If the image you are inserting is from your computer, you can edit the image inline, but you can’t edit the image in an external application until you publish the draft.

Copying and pasting images

You can copy an image from another source, and paste it on your Contribute page.

Note: If your Contribute administrator has restricted the types of images your user role can insert, you might be able to insert images only from shared assets.

You can also add images by using the Insert menu or Image button or by dragging them to the page.

To add an image by copying and pasting:

  1. In the application that contains the image you want to copy, select the image.
  2. Select Edit > Copy.
  3. Place the insertion point in your Contribute draft where you want the image to appear.
  4. Select Edit > Paste.
  5. If the Image Description dialog box appears, enter text to describe the image for users with disabilities or for users whose browsers are set to display text only, and then click OK.

The image appears in your draft. To make the image web-ready, Contribute reduces large images to the size pre-set by the Contribute administrator, if the administrator has enabled image processing for your role.

Note: If the image you are inserting is from your computer, you can edit the image inline, but you can’t edit the image in an external application until you publish the draft.
