Images are visual assets that enhance all Brightspot sites, and are used on nearly every page. Brightspot offers a shared image library, plus the ability to upload one-off images—images that are not shared to the library. This topic explains how to add an image to Brightspot.
To add an image:
- In the header, click .
- From the Create list, select Image.
- Using the following table as a reference, complete the fields as needed.
- Complete your site's workflow and save the image.
If your version of Brightspot includes image recognition, terms associated with the image appear under Brightspot Image Recognition. (For information about image recognition, see Submitting an image or video to Amazon Rekognition.)
After you save your image, you can use it in assets such as articles, galleries, and authors. You can also add images to text you compose in the rich-text editor.
|Internal name||Enter an internal name for this asset. Brightspot uses this name internally, such as in the search panel and recent activity widget. This name is not visible to visitors to your site.|
Do one of the following:
The image must be in one of the following formats: BMP, GIF, JPEG, JPG, PNG, X-PNG, SVG+XML, TIFF, WEBP, or X-TIFF.
Alt text appears in a blank box that would normally contain the image if the image does not display. The alt text defaults to the filename. You can modify the alt text if necessary.
Alt text powers front-end screen reader functionality, and is important for 508 compliance.
