Images found on the web

Provided you have permission to use an image from a different web - site you can insert it into your page in one of two ways.

ONE: Save the image to your computer and then follow the procedure as outlined above.

TWO: Tell ComfyPage that it can find the image on a different website. ComfyPage will go and get the image and display it as if it was a part of your website.

  1. You need to get the internet address of the image. Go to the web page that has the image you would like.
  2. Right - click with your mouse on the image from the web page.
  3. Click on Properties .
  4. Copy the address (aka URL) of the image.
  5. Go to the page of your site where you would like the image to be inserted.
  6. Edit the page. Eg. Follow the steps outlinedabove but instead of browsing the server, paste the address of the image into the URL box of the image.
  7. Click OK

Image Editing

Simple editing can be done with Google Picassa. A better editor is the Pixlr Online Editor.

Image Sizes

Images on websites are a concern for website creators. The file size of an image is what's important. The advice is to reduce file size where possible. The larger the file size the longer it will take for a visitor to download your website. This applies to all files but mostly to images.

ComfyPage provides a convenient way to reduce big images. If an image is big you are given the option to reduce it by clicking the

If you have a document on your site then it's probably as big as it needs to be. You can't reduce file size by cutting out paragraphs. Images can be made smaller without losing information. You can make the image smaller in width and height and you can lower the quality.

Here is a guide, an image of 100KB will take 20 seconds to download on dial - up. That's a long time for an impatient visitor. An image of 1MB will take 200 seconds to download. A digital camera will create images ranging in size from 300KB to 3MB. Way too BIG!

You should use an image editing program to reduce the size of your images before you upload them to ComfyPage.

Wrap Text Around Images

If its a new page you can achieve this by clicking on the layouts button ( ) on the page editor. I picked the option called Image and Title . It has an example that looks like this.

You can replace the placeholder text and image with your own. You can also change the position of the image.

For existing pages, if you already have content on the page, right click on the image and edit it's properties. Play around with the Align option.
