How To Add Images to your web page content

  5. The system will indicate that the file has been uploaded, and will show it in the file list selected.
  6. Double click or click "Select" on the image you want to insert on the webpage. You can then edit the properties of the image on the Image properties box:
    • Alternative Text: Describe the image in words, this is used by Search Engines and required for making your site compliant with accessibility standards.
    • Alignment: This is to change the images position beside the text. Left or Right side.
    • You can adjust the Height and Width of an image. Note it keeps the image ratio by default unless "Maintain Ratio" is unchecked. You can also reset to uploaded dimensions if you need too.
    • Margin: (TOP / RIGHT / BOTTOM / LEFT): Allows you to put space in pixels around the image.

Images should be optimized (saved in web-friendly format) and sized correctly before uploading.
Image Resolution
  • Images for the web should be no more than 72 dpi.
Image size
  • As a guideline, a photo image of 350 pixels wide should be no more than 25k.
File formats
Standard image file formats for web are:
  • .JPG (supports millions of colours, image edges can be fuzzy, mostly used for photos)
  • .GIF (used for images with up to 256 colours; can have transparent areas; good for images that required crisp edges ie. logos.)
  • .PNG (has some advantages of both the JPG and .GIF file formats but has compatibility issues on some older browsers.
Quick TIPS for Filenames
  • No spaces
  • Use alphanumeric characters (avoid symbols etc., hyphen – and underscore _ are OK)
  • Use logical file names that explain what the image is.
photo 1.jpg: not a good filename because it doesn’t describe the contents of the file, and the filename contains a space
redballoon.jpg: is a good filename, as you know exactly what the file contains and the name contains no spaces
red@balloon.jpg: an invalid filename because of the symbol contained in the filename
