In addition to the standard file upload dialogs (which can be used to upload images that do not need to be altered), Cyber Publisher also offers an image-specific uploader that allows images to be optimized during the upload process.
To upload an image using the file manager, you must first choose the parent directory to upload the file to. This is done by selecting the Browse Files tab and using the folder/file grid to navigate to the folder that you want to upload to.
Once you have chosen the parent directory to upload the file to, switch to the Advanced Image Upload tab. For verification purposes, the parent directory that you selected will be listed next to the Upload an image to heading.
Image file types that can be uploaded using the advanced image upload utility are JPEGs or JPGs, GIFs, BMPs and PNGs. If you have an image of another file type, you must use the standard file upload utilities.
When you upload an image via the Advanced Image Upload dialog, your image will be converted to a JPEG. There are a number of options that you can specify when uploading an image that will affect the quality of the converted file.
Once you have configured your image upload settings, choose the file that you want to upload by clicking the Browse (Firefox and Internet Explorer) or Choose File (Chrome and Safari) button and navigating to the file on your local computer.
Once you have selected a file, click the Upload Image button. The image will be uploaded to the server, you will be switched back to the folder/file grid, and the uploaded image will be available for use.
