How to stop Storyline from scaling down inserted pictures?
Sep 17, 2013
I am trying to Inset .png or .jpg format picture whose size is larger than the story size. The image is 900 pixels x 5,000 pixels. I want this picture to be able to scroll within a scroll panel. The story size is 1024 x 768.
However, Storyline is reducing (scaling down) my inserted picture to the story width of 768. If I then adjust its size with the 'Size and Position' panel to a width which fits the panel, the quality of the image unacceptably corrupted. The elegant alternative would be to insert the .pdf itself into a scroll panel but I haven't found a workable way to do this either.
Does anyone know of a way to stop Storyline from reducing my inserted picture size? This problem is preventing me from including long scrollable, illustrated documents. The .png files are exported from .pdf documents. They are good quality in Acrobat and in Photoshop. The alternative approach of cutting the long image into chunks which don't exceed the story height, putting each chunk on a separate layer with 'Next' and 'Previous' buttons is far too tedious and inefficient to update in the future.
