How to Add Pictures to Your Page

Adding Pictures Inline (mixed in with text)

First you need to upload your pictures to the page that will contain the pictures.  Find the page and click the edit button.  Locate the 'Field Inline Images' section, which looks like this:

Field Inline Images section.  This image shows that one picture has already been uploaded, as well as a form to upload another image.

Click the browse button, find the image you want to send, and click upload.

After the image has been uploaded, the form will change and you can insert a thumbnail into your text.

  • First, in the body of your page (the text editor) position your cursor where you want the image inserted.
  • Next, in the Field Inline Images section, select the thumbnail size you want inserted.  preset_inline_120 is the smallest, and preset_inline_640 is the largest.
  • Finally, click the insert button and the thumbnail will be inserted into the body (text editor) of your page.
  • If you need to add another image, click the 'Add Another Item' button.  (This button will present a few warning messages, they are safe to ignore)

Adding a Caption, Align, or Text Wrap your Picture

Now that you have an inline image inserted into your text, you can improve the layout of the image by adjusting alignment, adding a caption, and adding padding.

  • First, click on the image you want to tweak.
  • Next, click on the image 'Edit Image Properties' button.

  • You will now be presented with the image properties window

  • Please note, some combination of image properties dont work, so you should always save the page and see what it looks like.  
    • For some reason, you cant center an image with a caption.
    • Also, images inserted into bullet lists dont look quite right.

Adding a Header Image to your Page

To add a large header image to your page, locate the field_vt_header_image section. 

Click the browse button, locate the image to use for your header image, and click upload.  The image must be rather large to work as a header image.

After you have uploaded the image, be sure to save the page.

Adding a picture to a News Event or Highlight

Use the field_news_image section or field_highlight_image section to add an image to your news event or highlight.  Follow the same directions as 'Adding a Header Image to your Page' above.
