You can upload images to use in LibGuides to your "Personal Library," or opt to use images we've pre-uploaded for you in the "Shared Library."
Images in the Shared Library include:
As your Image Library grows, it may become harder to find a particular image you are looking for.
The Image Library includes a folder system for organizing your images. You could organize folders by guide name ("Getting Started"), by resource type ("Book Covers," "Database Icons"), by topic ("19th Century French Novels"), etc.
Choosing your image filenames carefully can also make finding them easier. For instance, you could include the name of the guide as part of the file names. A few examples:
|Column Width %||Max Image Width (in pixels)|
You can access and add images to LibGuides in two ways:
Follow these instructions to add an image to your guide from your computer.
First, have the URL (website address) for the image that you wish to use.
NOTE: Online images can move or be deleted, which will remove the image from your guide. If you want to ensure that your image remains, first save the image to your computer (by right-clicking) and then upload it to LibGuides using the instructions on the first tab. Be sure that you have permission to use any images that you download to use in a guide. (One way to do this is to use images with Creative Commons licenses.)
To get the URL of an image on the Internet, right-click on the image.
Depending on how you want to align the image, you can then either leave the alignment at "Not Set" or change it. (See Aligning Images & Text for more information.)
Remember that an image you link to from the Internet may not stay there forever.
