Item Type: Image

The Image item type is used to upload GIF, JPEG, or PNG files to Ag CMS for use within other item types (such as Page, News Item, etc.).

Use It For

  • Illustrations of various plants saved as PNG files
  • Photos of office staff saved as JPEG files

Best Practices

  • Consider uploading these files to the Images folder; they will be easier to find as you build your site.
  • Consider uploading images this way rather than directly into other item types such as Pages.
  • If you have many images to add, you'll want to use the Quick Upload Portlet instead. The following instructions are for when you have one or two images to add.
