Drupal Enterprise 7: Add an Existing Image to a Page
The following instructions are for websites using the default UMN Drupal Enterprise 7 (DE7) configuration.
If you have already added an image to a Drupal page, you can reuse that image without having to upload it again. In fact, it is best to reuse images whenever possible so that any future updates to the image can simultaneously refresh that image wherever it appears on your site.
Your role in Drupal may not have the proper permissions to complete the task. Contact your site administrator for additional information.
Click Menu in the Administrator toolbar.
Click Content in the Menu toolbar.
Use filters, if desired, at the top of the Content page to locate the page you want to edit by entering Title, Type, Author, Published status (Yes or No), or Vocabulary and clicking Apply.
Click the page title link in the Title column for the page you want to edit.
Click the Edit Draft tab.
Place your cursor in the content field where you want the image to display.
Click the Add Media icon in the HTML Editor toolbar.
Click the UMN Library tab.
Note: "UMN Library" does not mean the entire University of Minnesota Drupal library, but rather your site's library.
Use the filters to locate and select the image you wish to display.
Select your desired display size from the Display as drop-down menu.
If the Alt Text field is blank, add a descriptive phrase or sentence (important for accessibility).
Click Submit. You should now see the image in the field where you placed your cursor.
If the owner of the site has set up styles that you can apply from the WYSIWYG editor:
Add the image in the WYSIWYG editor, or if the image has already been added, select the image, then the add media button.
Next to "Display as," select the name of the view mode set up by your site owner.
