To place an Image on your page you first want to make sure you Image is no larger than 72dpi in resolution and it is the dimensions (width and height) that you want it to be on the web page. Shrinking the Image using the Image properties does not decrease the file size and if the Image is too much larger, the Browser load times could be slow. Also, a little tip on file types; JPEGS are best for pictures and GIFS are best for graphics.
Once your Image is ready for web viewing, go to your Files section and click the Add New File button. Click the browse button to browse your computer to locate the Image you wish to place on your web page. Click OK and choose the Upload button to Upload your photo to the Files section.
Next, go to your Pages section and click on the page you wish to insert your Image on. In the edit window, find the location on the page you wish to place the Image. If you want it to the right of the page but the cursor only rests on the left, don't worry, we'll adjust that later. Once you have your cursor in place, look for the Insert/Edit Image button in your tool bar and click on it. A pop up window should appear. Click the Browse Server button. Another pop up window should appear and you should see your Image that you Uploaded in the Files section listed, click on it. You should return to your first pop-up window. Here, you can align the Image left or right based on how you want the text to flow around it, you can give it a border and alt tags. Just a hint, if you plan on making this Image a Link and you do not want that blue border around your Image, make sure to set the border to "0" (zero).
Make sure the file name has no special characters or spaces and that the image is not too large. It should be no larger than 1000 pixles wide.
For example, the file name should look like this: newpicture1.jpg
NOT: new picture (1).jpg
Once done setting your preferences, click OK and your Image is placed on the page. Save the page and you're done!
In order to add a caption under your Image, you will add a "Stylesheet Class" of 'captioned' under the "Advanced" tab in the "Image Properties" box for the Image you're working on. Then add your caption as the "Advisory Title" under the same tab to create a caption at the bottom of the Image. The caption won't show up in the WYSIWYG editor, but if you save your work and preview the page on-line, you'll see your new caption there.
