How to Upload Images

These steps outline how to upload an Image / Clipart item.


Image items are loaded into one of three directories. They can then be used in any web page. The three directories are:

  • /Images
  • /Images/RumRiver
  • /OrderArrow/images

When using an image in a web page, reference the image with the directory name. For example, /images/BoysLife.jog

Images are forever. Because images can be used in district or OA Emails, they should never be removed from the site, unless you are absolutely sure they have not been used elsewhere.

To upload an image, do the following steps:

  1. Login as an admin to the web site
  2. Under the File Maintenance menu, select Image / Clipart Gallery
  3. This brings up a display of all existing images in the gallery, sorted by image name. Use the filter options to narrow down the display. Use the gallery to determine the name of the image to insert into a web page.
  4. Click on the link at the top of the page Maintain Images
  5. To change an existing image, find the image in the list and click Edit
  6. To delete an existing image, find the image in the list and click Delete
  7. Note: There is no logic available to insure an image is not in use before it is deleted!!!!!
  8. To add an image, go to the bottom of the page and:
  9. Enter the image description
  10. Select the directory (normally Images)
  11. Click on the Choose File button
  12. Navigate to the location on your computer where the file is located.
  13. Select the file name and click Open
  14. When everything is correct, click Add to upload the file

You can now use the image in a web page.
