Don't want to embed images.

Jan 04, 2013

I am looking to findout if there is anyway to have a image not embed into the storyline but just refer to the images location. I have an image bank full of images and would rather have the published file grab the images/audio/video it needs from that folder so that each course does not create a new folder with these files. This would save on space because I use some of the same images in alot of courses. No reason to keep multiple copies of the same images. Any help would be great. thanks

Thanks. Web Objects are a great idea. I have space but just hated to have a bunch of copies of the same image on the server. I like nice and clean. Also David in your video you talk about watching the size of your image so it does not resize when putting a new image in. Does that mean that Storyline does not remember what you sized the original to when placing it? I know some programs when you replace an image with a new one it keeps the attributes that were attached to the first image like; size, boarder effects, etc... Just would need to know if every time I change an image if I would need to make it the same exact size. Just some extra time if so I guess.

I'm trying this out as we would like to have centrally managed banners (not necessarily ads) show up in our courses. I'd like to reference a .jpg hosted on a server and have that appear in my courses.

I've done this by using the "Insert Video from Website" command and then placing the image in an iframe. One benefit to this is that it appears that other Storyline objects have no problem appearing over top of the iframe, which is a problem with web objects.

The problem I'm having is that I'm getting some padding at the top and left of my image. I've tried various border commands, but can't seem to get rid of the 10 or so pixels above and to the left of my image. How do I eliminate this padding? I can upload an example if this isn't clear.
