Berlin - Components | Image

The "Image" component allows us to insert an image in the content.

Images are added within the screens by default (See here) and pop-ups (See here), but they can also be added inside other components (for example, a Highlight, an Accordion, a Row, etc.).

You will find this component in the group of "Image" components.

Internal components

An image can have three components:

  • An Instruction located over the image.
  • Credits offering specific properties to define image colours and position (up, down, right, left, etc.)
  • A Caption located under the image. This component has the same specific properties than the "Text" component. (In order to learn how these properties work, visit here)

Image properties

PROPERTY

DESCRIPTION

Style

This property allows adding the image position with respect to the central column of contents:

  • Center on content.
  • Overflows right
  • Overflows left
  • Content width
  • Overflows both.
TitleImage title.

Alternative text

Text used to describe the image. This text will be shown when the user places the cursor over the image. It will appear also when the image does not load.

Resource

Image file that will be displayed. We will click on "Examine" to access the Resources folder in the unit (see here) and select the image we want to show. Supported image formats: jpeg, png, and gif.

Link to popup

It allows converting the image of an interactive element when linking it to a pop-up (See how to create and manage pop-ups here). This is a selective property, which means that if an image is linked to a pop-up, we will not be able to link it to a resource at the same time, for instance.

Link to resource

It allows linking the image to a PDF or ZIP file. We will click on "Examine" to access the Resources folder in the unit and select the file we want to link with the image. This is a selective property, which means that if an image is linked to a resource, we will not be able to link it to a pop-up at the same time, for instance.

External link

It allows linking the image with a URL. This is a selective property, which means that if an image is linked to a website, we will not be able to link it to a pop-up at the same time, for instance.

Link icon position

If we have added a link to the image (pop-up, resource or URL), an icon will be automatically added to the image to mark it as interactive. With this property, we can choose the position of the icon: on the left-upper corner, right-upper corner, left-lower or right-lower corner.

Link icon (40x40px)By default, when we add a link to an image, the following icon appears:

This property will help us to replace it by another image (if preferred). The new icon must have 40x40 pixels maximum, and we recommend using a .png file with a transparent background so the icon fits well on the image.

Width

This property allows changing the space occupied by a component inside a central column of contents. This component occupies 100% of the space by default. Text size can be reduced to other preset percentages or can be displayed in full-size. For some quote styles, "Full" width makes quotes lay over the central column.

AlignThis property allows placing the component on the right, on the left or on the centre of the central column where contents are shown. It can only be used when applied "Width" is less than 100%.

Float

It allows inserting the image and show it "wrapped" by a text.

  1. First, we should select a size percentage under 100% in "Width" property (25%, for instance).
  2. "Float" property allows us to decide where we would like to put the floating image (on the right or on the left of the text).
  3. We use arrows to move the image a place it on the text.
