In eCreator, you can add images wherever you see this icon:
For example, this could be:
- using the image panel
- as a background image for the page
- as the background of a text panel
Please see the guide Amend background/page options on an eCreator page to learn how to change a page background image.
This guide will explain the steps for uploading an image to a text or image panel.
If you haven't added the panel already, click on the plus icon to the left of the page and choose either Add new panel or Add image.
Using the Image Panel
Click on the icon to the left of the eCreator page and select Add Image.
An empty image panel placeholder will appear on your page. Click on the Browse and Upload link in the middle of the panel to locate and upload the image from your files.
To replace the image in future, click on panel and then the icon to the right of the panel.
Click on the Upload Image icon.
Then click on Upload Image to locate and upload your replacement image.
Change the transparency by moving the Opacity slider. To increase transparency move it to the left, to reduce transparency move it to the right.
Using a Text Panel
Click on the icon to the left of the eCreator page and select Add new panel.
Click on the panel you want to upload the image to then click on the icon to the right of the panel.
Click on the Background Image/Colour icon.
You have the option using the dropdown menu to either change the panel background colour or upload a background image.
If you select Colour...
...you can choose from the primary, secondary, light or dark colours specified as part of your chosen eCreator theme by clicking on the appropriate colour square or click on icon to have no colour. This will pull in the background applied to your eCreator theme.
If you have chosen one of the colours, change the transparency by moving the Opacity slider to the left to increase transparency or to the right to reduce transparency.
If you select Image...
...click on Upload Image to locate and upload the image you wish to use. The image may take a few seconds to upload to your panel.
Fit or Fill
Whether you are uploading an image to a text panel or image panel, you have the option to set the image to Fit or Fill the frame. When you first upload the image, it will automatically Fill the frame and the panel will be resized to the actual image size.
The Fill Frame option will increase the size of the image to the full size of the panel to fill it on all sides. This will usually result in some of the image being cropped.
