Every framework site has a central images folder where it is recommended you upload all of the images on your site.
Images should be sized for placement before uploading them to the WCMS. For image sizing guidelines, visit the IU Style Guide.
Note: Other file types, such as PDFs, video, and audio files, can be uploaded to the WCMS using the same method.
Navigate to the Images folder.
Under Add Content, select File.
The New File screen will open. Select the pre-sized image to be uploaded. The WCMS will automatically generate the File Name. You can change the file name after you have selected the image, but ensure that the extension remains in the file name. For more information, see the naming convention guidelines.
Under the Metadata tab, enter Alternative Text (Alt text) in the Summary field. Alt text describes the image for those using assistive technologies.
Note: If using an image in an Image Chunk, the alt text will not appear if a caption is entered in the Caption field.
Click Save & Preview to view the image.
Submit the image. You can select Submit or Check Content & Submit. After passing the content check, the file will display in the folder tree.
