How do you upload an image to an article on Newsvine? This question comes up often enough for someone to write an article on the topic complete with screenshots, so here it is.
There are two options for uploading photographs, 'Write Article' and 'Post Photo'. If you're looking to just add a photograph or two to an article you've written, you'll want to use 'Write Article'. If you're uploading multiple images into one article, and most of what you have to say about them will be in captions and cutlines, use the 'Post Photo.'
I suspect most will probably use the 'Write Article' option, so let us go over that first.
1. Mouse over 'Publish', then click 'Write Article' on your Newsvine settings bar.
2. This will bring up the article editor, in all its glory. On the right, in the 'Insert Media' section, click on the images icon and then 'Add Image.'
3. Click 'Select File'.
4. Select your file, allow it to upload and click 'Save'.
5. An 'Edit Image' box will then come up. This is where you can choose the alignment and enter a caption and link. Images utilizing the 'None' alignment option will span the width of your article. The right and left options will leave room for text on either side. Enter a link to the original source if you've borrowed the image, as borrowed images must be properly attributed to the owner. In this case, a link has been provided to a larger image.
Once done here, click 'Save'.
6. The image will now show up in icon form in the editor. If you hover it, you have options to delete, move and edit. One click on the X will remove the image. Use the arrow keys on the keyboard to move the image up or down. Edit will bring up the alignment, caption and link options.
The 'Post Photo' option is slightly different. Once the article editor loads, the 'Insert Media' bar is removed. All you need to with this option is click the 'Add Photo' above the article and repeat steps 3-5. All images will use the none alignment. You may also change the order they appear here by clicking the arrows on the right. You must enter in a comment, otherwise 'Type a comment here ...' will remain in the article.
That about covers it. If you have questions, you may ask them below.
