Working with Images and Other Files: Positioning and Sizing

Resize An Image

  1. While in the IMCE dialog box (please see Section 5, Working with Images - Upload a File) select the image you wish to resize from the list on the right.

  3. Type in a width for your image. When you tab over to height, it will automatically fill in this field.
  4. If you want to create a new image, click the checkbox next to Create a new image.
  5. Click the Resize button.

Positioning an Image

You can position an image within your content.

  4. Click the OK button.
  5. Scroll to the bottom of the page.
  6. Click the Save button to save your changes.

NOTE: Aligning to the left or the right will “float” the image beside the copy.

  2. Enter a number (often 1 or 2 ) in the Border field to add a border to the image.
  3. Enter a number (often 5-10) for Horizontal Space in the HSpace field.

  5. Click the OK button to save your changes.

Add Your Affiliate Name to the Header

You can customize the header of your theme to include your affiliate name that can be read by search engines.

  1. In the Administration Menu across the top of your screen, select Site Configuration → Site Information.
  2. In the Name box, type in your Affiliate Name.
  3. Click the Save Configuration button at the bottom of the page to save your changes.

Note: Some themes do not allow for long affiliate names. So adding your affiliate name through an image is the only option.
