This article will show you how to add existing image files from your computer to a ScreenSteps article.

Are you using the web or desktop editor?

Select Image from the options that appear when you click on the + button that appears above or below content in the web editor.

Add image content block

You can drag and drop your image into the designated area, or click on the Your computer button or Browse link to display a file selection dialog.

Add image

You can add existing images to your articles in the following ways:

  1. Importing images
  2. Dragging images onto the article
  3. Inserting an image file
  4. Copying and pasting the image

1. Import images

If you have one or more images that you would like to add to a ScreenSteps article, just import the image files into an open ScreenSteps article. Each image will be a different step.

Import files

2. Drag images onto the article

You can drag images from another application (like Word or iPhoto) or as a file saved in a folder.

When you drag an image onto ScreenSteps, a new step will be created.

You may want to adjust the auto scale for your article so that when you bring images over they are the right size for your article.

3. Inserting an image file

You can add an image file just like any other content object by following the instructions in the Add new content to an article help article. Once you've added an image content block you can capture a screenshot or add an existing image file.

4. Copy and paste image

If you have an image on your clipboard, you can right-click in the outline or article and select Paste Image from the menu that appears. You can also use the Edit > Paste Image menu option.

Right-click to paste image
Congratulations, you are done!
