Get the images on your computer
For a start, the pictures you want to include in your text have to be saved on your computer. If you are copying the text from a doc file or a pdf, the pictures will be included in the text, but in StreetLib Write you'll need to add those picture as a distinct file.
In that case, here is how to save the pictures from the original file:
- If your original file is a .doc: right click on the picture and pick "save picture as"
- If your original file is a pdf: In this case the pictures have to be exported. The way to do so is this:
- Open the file with Adobe Reader
- select the picture with a left click (it becomes blue)
- with a right click select "save picture"
- the picture is saved into the clipboard
- Open a picture editor and paste the picture in the new file.
- At this point, you'll be able to save the picture in the needed format. The picture is saved as is, theoretically it doesn't loose any quality in the process.
Add the Image to StreetLib Write
Once your images saved, here is how to add them onto StreetLib Write:
- In the side navigation bar, click on the bottom center button "images";
- click on "Add";
- Select the picture on your computer.
Once the picture is added in your "images" archive, you can include it in the text whenever you want, dragging it into the text editor where you want it to be.
Edit the image
- You can resize images externally on your computer from pretty much any image editor.
- You can also resize it directly on StreetLib Write:
- With a left click on the image, you'll be able to resize it manually
You can also add and edit a caption, if you want one, clicking on the "Caption..." text.
Delete an image
To remove an image from the text, you just need to use the backspace or delete key on your keyboard.
To delete it from your StreetLib Write project image collection, just go to it on the left navigation bar, on the "images" tab and click on the "x" button to delete it. Putting your mouse over the information button, you'll be able to check the characteristics of your image (file name, size, etc.)
