Photo Chooser


Inserting pictures into content pages (what size are they?)

When inserting pictures into content pages in version v3 there are several choices for image sizing. Small, Medium, Large, and Original. The different choices are inserted using a length ratio that is 100 pixels for small, 250 for medium, 450 for large. Original is going to be the resolution that the camera was set at when the photo was taken. This is generally going to be to big for the content page you are planning to insert the image into.

Here are the steps

  • Sign in to your netAdventist website.
  • Select the Dashboard link at the bottom of the homepage.
  • Select the Website Pages tab at the top of the page.
  • The homepage preview is displayed by default. Select the Edit link at the top of the page in the preview. Or you can select Content Pages and choose one of those to edit by selecting one.
  • Place your cursor where you what to place your photo. If you fail to place your cursor the photo you are inserting will appear at the top of the page.
  • Select the Photo Chooser tool in the top line of tools 6th from the end. A Dialog box opens.
  • Either upload a new photo by choosing the upload tab and then browse for a new image and upload and insert it or choose a photo that is already in the list by selecting the check box in front of the photo and then select your photo size by checking the appropriate checkbox. If one of the preset sizes doesn't fit what you are looking for, select original then Insert.
  • To adjust the inserted image size, alignment or dimensions either select the whole image and drag the corners to the correct size or select the Insert/Edit Image tool in the second row of tools. Note the image tool will be highlighted after you select the image. I dialog box will open giving you the choice to set the parameters including number of pixels height and width.
  • Select Update when finished and then Save for the content page.

Note: keep in mind that you have the ability to enlarge or reduce a pic once it is inserted. You will lose resolution if you enlarge a small pic so insert a larger pic and reduce it to size by selecting the image and use the board marks to reduce the image to size. This will avoid pixelization. Also once a pic is inserted you can select it and use the insert/edit image tool from the second row of the editing tools.
