Use a table to lay pictures and/or text out evenly on a page.

  • Place the cursor in the position where the pictures/text will be placed on the page
  • Select the 'Inserts a New Table' icon from the Editor Tool bar
  • Select the number of columns and rows (In the example above 1 row and 3 columns were selected.)
  • On the Alignment drop down list, select the positioning of the table on the page (The example above uses Centre to centre the pictures/text evenly across the page.)
  • Insert.  The table now appears on the page.
  • Place the cursor in a table cell
  • Click on Table Cell properties. 
  • On the General Tab, select the Alignment that you want in your cell. (The example above uses Centre.)
  • Place the cursor in a table cell
  • Select 'Insert /edit image' icon.
  • Select 'Browse Server'.  This takes you to your Marae website Uploads file.

Tip:  If the pictures are all the same size, they will lay out well on the page. The examples above were copied to a Word Document and sized to match by right clicking and selecting Size.  A shadow was then applied to each picture.  Copy to Paint and select Save As under File on the menu bar.  Save as a .jpeg file.  (This Tip box was created using a single Table cell.  It was coloured by selecting a background colour on the Advanced Tab.)

  • Browse for your picture file on your computer and Upload.
  • When the file has been uploaded, select Insert
  • The picture now appears in the Preview box on the Insert /edit image pop up.  The URL for the picture appears in the URL line.
  • Write a description of the image and a Title.  The Title will appear when your hover over the picture on your webpage
  • On the Appearance Tab select the position of your picture/text in your table cell (In the example above, Top was selected.  This positions the picture at the top of the cell.)
  • On the General Tab click Insert.
  • Save.
