The Image element displays a single image from Resources. It will automatically fill the width of the container the element is displayed in.
In addition to the common element settings, the Image element includes the following configuration options.
- Browse: Use this button to search for a specific image within Resources and select it to display in the element.
Display Resource: Choose to display the filename or the title of the image, or none.
Alt text: Alt text is a written description of the file for screen readers and other assistive technology, and it is required on images by current ADA standards.
Show caption: Select this checkbox to display the text from the “Description” field for the image in Resources, or a custom caption. The option to “Use custom caption” will appear when this checkbox is selected.
Use custom caption: Select this checkbox to override the text from the “Description” field and use a special caption for this instance of the image only. A text field will appear below to enter the custom caption when this option is selected.
Ignore URL Parameters: If this option is selected, the resource displayed in the element by default will remain even if user-selected criteria would normally override it.
List, Grid, and Slideshow formats
Note that the Image element can also be used in a List, Grid, or Slideshow format, which functions the same as the Resource element. Refer to the Resource element article for more information about these settings.
