Upload an image to a story
In the story editor, select the Image icon in the toolbar to add an image. Or, you can drag and drop images into the story editor in the lead art, body, and gallery fields. You can also search through images using the image sidebar, upload from your own device, or upload by using a URL.
Search for images
You can search for images in the asset dashboard as well as in the story editor.
When you’re in the story editor, select the add image icon and then Search to find images from Chorus. If you have third party asset services like Getty or Merlin connected to your organization, it will search through images from there as well. Chorus will remember the image source you’ve used recently and default to it next time you search.
You can filter the results by tag, upload date, or who uploaded the file. You can also use search phrases, like “world cup” on:7.14.2018.
After images have been added to a story, you can select Story images from the image sidebar to view or re-add them. This is a great way to reuse images for search, social, or homepage promotion.
Select the subject
Use the select subject tool to set the focal point for lead art, promotional images, and product images. Chorus uses this focal point to automatically generate versions of the image needed to promote your story in different contexts.
Update an image
After uploading or selecting an image, update the image metadata and ensure the alt text meets accessibility guidelines. Like galleries and sidebars, images are shared across a community so you can reuse them in several stories. If you update image metadata like the credit, the changes will appear on every story where it’s used after caching expires. Otherwise, the caption will be unique and editable each time the image is used in a story.
If the image is sensitive, you can add a content warning to it for audiences.
Cut and paste an image to move it around in the story. Select and delete an image to remove it from the story.
Once you’ve added your image to the story, you can adjust the size and positioning of it when you’re ready to review your story’s appearance in the layout tool.
