Manage Images

Contegro's Image Manager is used to store and manage images for use on your website.  Site administrators with permissions to manage images can create and delete image folders to store image files, upload images and remove images that are no longer required.


The 'Optimise on Upload' function is ideal for optimising images (i.e. reducing file and image size) on upload.


This section explains the task of managing images in the Image Manager:


1.Go to Contegro Start > Content > Files and select Images.
