Adding Images on Booksie

There are two ways you can add images to your work on Booksie.

1. Upload an image. You can upload one image per posted piece. When you do this, the image will be automatically sized to fit the box next to the title of the content.

2. Embed an image. You can embed as many images as you want and they can be any size that you want.

Below is an example of both types of images.

To Upload an Image

You will first need to find an image that you can save to your computer. You can surf the Web and find images but make sure the owner has provided permission for you to use them or you will be violating copyright law. Then, save the image per the instructions on the site.

One common way to save images to your computer is to point the cursor on the image and right click the mouse. A box will pop up that will allow you to save the image to your computer.

Some sites that provide free images are:

stock.xchang - Contains over 250,000 images from 25,000 photographers. Most are free to use within the guidelines.

Yotophoto.com - An image search engine that categorizes free photos from across the Web.

Freephotosbank.com - Thousands of free photos.

 

You can also get a much larger selection and never have to worry about copyright by purchasing images from royalty free sites. Generally the images cost between $20-$100.

Add an Image to Content Already Published

To add an image to content already published, save the image to your computer then follow these steps:

  1. Click the publish tab at the top of the page.
  2. Click the Edit link to the right of the piece you want to add the image to.
  3. Click Edit Main Content Information
  4. Add your image following the directions in the appropriate place.

To Embed an Image

Embedding images is a way of adding images to the body of your content on Booksie. You can add it into a poem, a short story, novel, etc. When you embed an image, you don't actually upload it to the site, but link to an image posted elsewhere. To embed an image:

  1. Find an image to embed on the Web, use your own, or purchase one from a stock-photo house.
    1. If you found an image on the Web that you have permission to use, right click on the image.
    2. Copy the address or location of the image: i.e. - http://www.booksie.com/content/images/SM-21776-96_MEDIA_IMAGE_.jpg
    3. Click the images icon on the Booksie text editor where you want to add the image and then paste the URL location into their.
    4. That's it, the image will be added.
  2. If you are using your own images, you'll first have to store them somewhere. A popular place is Photobucket.
    1. Once you have uploaded your images to Photobucket or another image storage service, you can add images to Booksie by copying the Direct Link into Insert Image Address box.

That's it. It may seem a bit difficult and confusing, but once you go thorugh it a few times you'll be uploading and adding images in seconds.
