How to Add im­ages and em­bed con­tent

Mac Format - - APPLE SKILLS -

1 Man­age your me­dia

Click­ing RapidWeaver’s Me­dia but­ton opens this win­dow, the Me­dia Browser. It looks in Pho­tos and your user ac­count’s Pic­tures folder by de­fault, but you can drag ad­di­tional fold­ers onto it from Finder, which is what we’ve done here.

4 Get plug­ging

RapidWeaver plug-ins (also re­ferred to as add-ons) add ex­tra fea­tures to the app. For ex­am­ple, to add a photo gallery, choose Add > All Plug­ins > Photo Al­bum. Drag pho­tos from the Me­dia Browser and RapidWeaver does the rest.

2 Find your pho­tos

Your im­ages will now ap­pear as thumb­nails in the Me­dia Browser. You can change view­ing op­tions with the tool­bar at the bot­tom of the Me­dia Browser’s win­dow. To add an im­age, open a page in Edit mode and drag the pic­ture onto it.

5 Make a map

Adding con­tent such as Google Maps to your site is sim­ple. In Sa­fari, go to maps.google.co.uk and find the place you want to show on your site. Bring up the menu and choose Share/Em­bed, then click Em­bed Map and copy the code.

3 Fine- tune your photo

Dou­ble-click­ing an im­age dis­plays more op­tions, such as to add a drop shadow, add a bor­der, or ro­tate the im­age. We’ve added a ba­sic drop shadow and then clicked on Pre­view at the top of RapidWeaver’s win­dow to see the re­sult.

6 Em­bed the con­tent

To add your map, open the page in RapidWeaver on which you want it to ap­pear, switch to Edit mode and paste the code where you want the map to ap­pear. Click Pre­view and you should now see the com­pleted map in all its glory.
