Image Chooser

Overview

The Image Chooser is available in Text Editor for all Documents and Chapters.

You can use images in your Steelkilt Project in the following ways:

  • Add a Book cover image
  • Add a Part title page image
  • Import images for use as EPUB Content Resources using Code Editor

Images that are added to Steelkilt via Book Settings and Part Settings are saved to the Images folder of the XHTML rendition of your EPUB — which is only accessible via Code Editor.

However, most people will use Text Editor to write and edit text.

The Image Chooser provides a convenient way for you to access the images in your Steelkilt Project from within Text Editor.

You can also:

  • Add images to your Project from within the Text Editor (and automatically save those images to the Images folder of the XHTML rendition of your EPUB)
  • Embed images from the Image Chooser into your text
