LibGuides for Guide Authors: Getting Started (OLD)


Adding Images from the Web

Everything -- well, nearly everything -- you need to get started with LibGuides and publish your guides

Adding Images from the Web

  1. In the text editor, go to the place in a text box that you want the image to appear and click on the image icon (picture of a tree).
  2. Enter the URL of the image where it says "Image URL."

    • To get the URL of an image on the Web, right-click on the image.  In Firefox, you can then click on "Copy image location" to grab it for pasting into LibGuides.  In Internet Explorer, click on "Properties" and highlight and copy the URL.
  3. Depending on how you want to align the image, you can then either leave the alignment at "Not Set" or change it.  (See Aligning Images & Text for more information.)
  4. Remember that an image you link to from the Web may not stay there forever.
