Adding and using images on your School Loop site.

Adding images and slideshows to your site are great ways to personalize and show off the students, activities, and school in general. There are two different ways to upload images onto your site. You can either upload an individual image to your page, or you can create an Image Album to use the images to create slideshows.

Posting a Single Image on a Page

If there is one picture that you only want to use once, you can upload it without creating an Image Album.

  1. Log into School Loop
  2. Click on your folder under Create Your Websites
  3. Navigate to the page you want to add the picture to
  4. Click the green plus sign
  5. Select Picture under the Element Gallery
  6. Please give your image a title, alt tag/description, and select/browse for your image file
  7. Click Submit
This image will only be able to be accessed in this one element. You will not be able to access it on any other page or use it in a slideshow unless it is added to an Image Album.

Images and Slideshows using Image Albums

To use the same images on multiple pages, you don't need to upload them separately each time. You can create an Image Album and access them on any page on your site. Also, if you want to create a slideshow, you must create an Image Album and upload the images for that specific slideshow to that album.

Adding an Image Album

Creating Image Albums will allow you to access the images in different places on your site.

  1. Log into School Loop
  2. Click on your folder under Create Your Websites
  3. Click Resource Files in the upper right corner
  4. Under Image Albums, click Add Album
  5. Give the album a title and description
  6. Click Submit
You can now access your new album in your Resource Files. Under Image Albums, you can also edit your album, add or delete images, or delete your album.

Uploading Images to an Image Album

Once you have created your Image Album, you can upload your images. The images that you upload in these albums can be accessed on any page on your site or on other pages, if you are granted permission to other pages on the site, so you will only have to upload them once. If you are granted permission to other pages or sections of the school site you will be able to access the images uploaded in any Image Albums for those pages or sections.

  1. Log into School Loop
  2. Click on your folder under Create Your Websites
  3. Click Resource Files in the upper right corner
  4. Under Image Albums, click on Add Images under the title of the album that you want the picture uploaded to
  5. Please give your image a title, alt tag/description, and select/browse for your image file

Applying Images to a Slideshow

Once you have your Image Album set up with the images you want uploaded, you can create a slideshow and apply them to any page on the site.

  1. Log into School Loop
  2. Click on your folder under Create Your Websites
  3. Navigate to the page you want to add a slideshow to
  4. Click the green plus sign
