Using Images in an Advanced Bulletin

Adding images to your Advanced Bulletins will increase the visual appeal of your bulletins and help draw your reader's interest into your stories. The Advanced Bulletin Editor offers enhanced image capabilities, including an image library and the ability to crop and zoom into images.

Images are added to your advanced bulletin or template using an image content block. For more information about content blocks, see Working with Content Blocks in Advanced Bulletins.

Adding Images from your Image Library

The image library allows you to access existing images and upload new images for use in your bulletins and templates. The image library features three tabs:

  • Everywhere: all images available for you to use
  • Specific: images only available to the template that you are working in
  • Styling images: images used in developing the template, including background images, etc.

Your library might already contain images. Images can be added to the library during bulletin creation, or from within the library itself. To learn more about uploading and managing images in the library, see Managing Images.

To upload an image from your image library to your bulletin or template:

  1. Click into an image content block.
  2. Click the Choose/Upload button.
  3. Find an image by browsing for it on one of the available tabs or searching for it by file name.
  4. Click the image you want to use.

Instructions for modifying an image once you have added it can be found below.
