Tech Note: The Integrated Image Library for LGF Pages
Today we have a really nifty new feature to announce, appearing now in your LGF Pages posting bookmarklet. Look to the bottom left of the window and you’ll now see a button labeled “Image Library,” which, if you click, will bring up the following dialog box — a miniaturized version of our new Image Library app.
This version of the Library works in a very similar way to the stand-alone app; you can click the image thumbnails to see larger versions, page back/forth and beginning/end, enter descriptions/keywords and save them, search for images matching keywords, and see the image’s information.
But there’s an extra feature that’s not in the stand-alone app — you can insert the HTML code to display an image directly into your LGF Pages post, with an optional caption that appears under the image, by clicking the button labeled “Insert.”
NOTE: If you’re planning to insert an image, before opening the Image Library you should first make sure the text cursor is at the point where you want the code to be inserted.
To make it even simpler to reuse images and captions, when you insert the code for one of your images, your image alignment and caption settings are automatically saved.
Have at it, Pages authors!
P.S. Almost forgot to mention that the “Upload Image” feature has also been revamped to use Ajax-like techniques to upload files (actually, it’s using the IFRAME method), so that it no longer needs to open in a separate window.
