Image fields overview

19/08/2008

Users can upload their own images into web-to-print templates. Images can be standalone or in a PowerClip (clipping path). A number of transformations and alignment rules can be applied as well.

Image placeholder

Rename the image in Object Manager to make it a variable field for users to upload their own images into. More…

Image alignment

The rotation center of the image placeholder is used as an alignment anchoring point. Drag the rotation center to the alignment point. User-uploaded images will be aligned automatically. More…

Images in PowerClip

Variable images in PowerClip (clipping path) follow slightly different rules from standalone image fields. PowerClips are tricker to set up, but offer amazing graphic design possibilities. More…

PowerClip vs. simple placeholder

Using a simple Image Placeholder in your template will cause the system to fit the uploaded image inside the image placeholder, while putting your image placeholder inside a Power Clip will cause the system to fill the image placeholder with the uploaded image without gaps. More…

Colour picker

A colour picker replaces the placeholder image with a solid fill of a selected colour. Choose RGB or CMYK colour profile for best web-to-print or dynamic imaging quality. The RGB picker has  point-and-click option and a text box for entering a hex value of the colour. CMYK picker has only point-and-click option. More…

A sample CDR file can be downloaded from your Sample Stationery catalog (go to Summary page).
