How to upload images
Once you have created an image folder you are ready to upload images.
You can upload several images at a time using drag and drop.
The JCE Content Editor makes it easy to upload images whilst editing Articles and Custom HTML Modules.
There are some restrictions i.e. you may only upload image files when using the Image Editor Button at the top of the Content Editor panel.
However, there is also a button called Image below the Content Editor Panel (see image below).
Select this and you will see a pop up version of the Media screen.
This pop-up will enable you to upload any Permissible File Type.
Three simple steps
Maximum File Size
We recommend that you limit the file size of each image you upload to approx. 120 KB.
Reason: to ensure fast loading web pages.
You may however sometimes want to upload bigger images than this.
Whilst the JCE Content Editor has a default file size upload limit of 1024 KB, you can increase this by changing the settings of any one JCE Content Editor Profile.
Note: you will still be limited by whatever overarching Server Upload Limit is enforced by your web hosting company.
When you review any one JCE Content Editor Profile, you can:
- see what the current Server Upload Limit is, and
- increase the value of the JCE Upload File Size Limit.
If you need to upload an image of greater size than the Server Upload Limit you will need to contact your web hosting company's technical support.
Drag & drop images directly into website articles
JCE also lets you drag & drop images directly into website articles.
Images dragged from your device will be stored in the root of the IMAGES directory.
You can subsequently transfer uploaded images from the root of the IMAGES directory to any sub-directory using the CUT & PASTE buttons provided.
You can also upload images as well as other file formats using your website's Media screen.
