5.2 How to Write and Post Web Articles - 4 Move images to an Article Images folder.

#4 Move images to an Article Images Folder on your home computer.
We are ready to place all of the welcome article images in our website images/0_welcome/welcome folder. If you haven’t already done so, create a 0_welcome article image folder for this article inside the 0_welcome category images folder we created previously on your home computer. We will save our three welcome article images inside of this 0_welcome images folder. This should be numbered 01, 02 and 03. Once you have created the welcome article images folder, right click on each image and click on SAVE...

Because these image files will be transferred directly to your website, file names for these image files should be in lower case. No spaces or capital letters. It is best to save images as JPG files which is what Libre Writer does automatically after they are compressed. Then give the image a name (01, 02, 03, etc) and click SAVE. Here is our 0_welcome images folder with our three images in it:


As you save each image, you should check to make sure none of these images is over 100 KB, but usually Libre Writer Compress Graphic does a good job of optimizing and compressing the images as they are captured and transferred. Note that all of the images are under 50 KB.

Below is what the Text Only (web) version of the Welcome article looks like after the four images have been copied to the images folder and the images have then been deleted from the WEB version of your Writer document and replaced by the placeholders, 01, 02 and 03:

Note that the web version does not have any actual images. It now consists only of text – with 01, 02, etc indicating where the images should be inserted back in to the text one the text itself has been copied and pasted into the website article.

Now that you have created a WEB or TEXT ONLY version of your Welcome Article and your 3 Welcome Article images are placed into their proper folder on your HOME computer, it is time to copy each of these 3 images into a similar folder on your website server.
