Import multiple resolution images

Use the Import Images With Multiple Format wizard to import images and their different resolutions in bulk into the repository.

All images must prepared before import as follows:

  • Each image resolution must be saved in a different directory. It is recommended that you create an import directory with a subdirectory for each type of resolution. For example:
  • All the different resolutions of an image must share the same filename. For example, you might have a file called bike.jpg that you'd use for web output, and another called bike.png that you would use for glossy brochures.

To import multiple resolution images:

  1. Select File > Import.
    The Import dialog appears.
  2. Open the IXIASOFT CCMS folder and select Import Images With Multiple Formats (DRM).
  3. Click Next.
    The Images With Multiple Formats dialog opens.
    Import Multiple Resolution Images
  4. Select the image Format to import and click Browse.
    The Browse For Folder dialog appears.
  5. Navigate to the directory that contains the images for this format and click OK.
    The selected directory appears in the Folder Path list.
  6. Repeat the steps as required for all the formats that you are using.
  7. To import as a read-only object, select the Import As External checkbox.
  8. (Optional): Click Next.
    The Specify Default Values dialog opens.
    Specify Default Values

    The values you specify will be used for all the resolutions of all the images. You can change the values for individual images later on, if you want.

  9. In the Description box, type a description for the file.
  10. In the Default language list, choose the language you want set for the file.
  11. In the Type list, click the type of image being imported.
  12. In the Default format list, click the output format for the image.
    This may determine the output format that an image will be used for, depending on your system setup.
  13. Select the Needs Translation checkbox to designate the image as needing translation or clear the checkbox if the image should not be included in the image localization kit.
    Certain types of graphics may automatically enable this checkbox, but you can change the values for individual images later on, if you want.
  14. Click Next.
    The Select Versions dialog appears.
  15. Do one of the following:
    • To import the images in a product, click the Products tab and then select the product in which to import the image.
    • To import the images in a library, click the Libraries tab and then select the library in which to import the image.
    You can import images in a single product or library only, but you can import them in more than one versions inside the product or the library.
    The releases and versions available for the selected product or library are displayed in the Selected Products/Libraries, Releases, and Versions pane.
  16. In the Selected Products/Libraries, Releases, and Versions pane, select the versions to which you would like to add the imported images.
    Use the filter at the bottom of the pane to filter the versions in the list by release name.
    The Primary Version drop-down list is populated with the list of selected versions.
  17. In the Primary Version list, select the primary version for the images.

    The primary version is the version for which the images were initially created.

  18. Click Finish.
