Add and Edit Images with Joomla JCE Editor

This addition to the Joomla Documentation addresses adding/editing/managing images for both Static and regular Content Items.

The editor an Administrator will be using is JCE Editor, which provides more advanced tools then Joomla’s default editor TinyMCE.

The following instructions will be based on editing an existing Content Item. To add an image you would:

=> select Content Items Manager
=> select a Content Item
=> place curser at intended image location
=> select Insert/Edit Image icon
=> select appropriate Folder
=> select Upload Icon
=> browse for appropriate image
=> add Name for image
=> select preferred options (overwriting)
=> select image you just uploaded
=> select Insert

The image will now be inserted into your Content Item. You can also adjust things such as Size, Alignment, and Border size and color within the Insert/Edit control panel.

You can now Save your Content Item and view with the image you’d just uploaded. As a note; Adding/Editing images through the Administrator handles images technically different then going through the steps of Adding New Memorial or Gallery Item. However, it is not noticable on the front end.
