1. Inserting images

To insert an image, open the “Edit description” menu. You can find this menu by hovering your mouse over the right side of the description field (Fig. 2).

A dialog window opens. You have two options here. You can insert images that are saved on your computer or you can insert images from the Internet.

Inserting images from your computer

To insert an image that is saved on your computer, click “Choose file” under the heading “Upload new file” (Fig. 4).

Fig. 4: Uploading a file Another dialog opens. Choose your file here. You can upload any common file format: JPG, JPEG, GIF BMP, PNG. Once you have located the file you want to upload, click “Open” and then “Upload.” The system automatically completes the field labeled “From URL.” You can also add an alternative text to the file (using the “Alt” field) and specify the size of the inserted image. We recommend that you leave the box next to “Keep ratios” checked. Your image might be distorted otherwise. To insert your image, click “OK” (Fig. 5).

Inserting images from the Internet

To insert an image from the Internet, enter the link to the image in the “From URL” field. Make sure that the link has a file extension. This means that it must end in “.jpg,” “.png” or something similar. Again, you can add an alt text and set the dimensions of the image (Fig. 7).
