Add pictures to the map
1. Right-click the map and choose Insert Image. Be sure to right-click the map itself, and not a map element, or the Insert Image command may not appear.
2. Select a picture. A preview of the picture appears in the lower left corner. The Show Details box in the lower right corner displays the height, width, color depth, and image type of the picture.
3. (Optional) If you want to reduce the size of the picture, click the Limit image size (in pixels) box and enter the width and height you want the picture to be. The picture will be resized proportionally.
The settings you specify will be saved and will appear the next time you insert a picture. So be sure to check this setting and adjust it, if necessary, whenever you insert a picture.
4. (Optional) If the picture is a sequential .JPG (such as a picture taken with a digital camera), you can rotate the picture before adding it. Click a rotation option.
5. Click Open.
6. Drag the picture to the desired location.
7. (Optional) Drag the corners of the picture to resize it.
You can also add a picture to the map by choosing Insert > Shape > Image/Clipart, or dragging a picture onto the map from another application such as a word processor or browser, or dragging a picture file onto the map from Windows Explorer.
CuteSITE Builder supports the following picture types: .BMP, .DIB, .GIF, .JPG, .PCX, .PIC, .PNG, .TGA, .TIF, and .TIFF.
If you add a picture larger than the map, CuteSITE Builder automatically resizes the picture so it fits in the available map area.
You can resize a map picture either by dragging or by using the Image Properties dialog box. You can also specify that CuteSITE Builder keep the picture at a fixed size when you drag, in order to create a tiled effect. To set this option, right-click the picture and choose Properties.
You can also use the Map Image Properties dialog box to set whether the picture displays only in the main map, only in the OverAll map, or in both maps.
You can also crop or set a transparent color for or view the properties for map pictures in the Image Properties dialog box. To display this dialog box for a map picture, right-click the picture and choose Properties. Then, in the Map Image Properties dialog box, click the Properties button.
CuteSITE Builder stores each picture only once per file, even if you insert the picture in multiple places. This means that reusing an picture does not significantly affect the size of a CuteSITE Builder file. It also means that once you have added an picture to a file, it can be quicker to copy and paste the picture to other locations rather than inserting the picture again.
With the exception of .JPG and .PIC format pictures, CuteSITE Builder stores and displays pictures using the CuteSITE Builder color palette. The CuteSITE Builder color palette is slightly modifed from palettes used by common Web browsers, and has a maximum density of 256 colors. If your display supports more colors, you will be able to see the additional colors only in .JPG and .PIC format pictures.
You can lock shapes and pictures in place on the map so that you don’t inadvertently move them while moving pages, labels, sequences, or tour sequences. Right-click in the map and choose Lock Background to lock map elements.
You can not move map elements (such as pages, labels, and shapes) beyond the borders of the map. However, you can drag an element against the edge of the map window to cause the map to scroll. Use the OverAll Map to locate a map element that is out of sight, or scroll the map to bring the element into view. As an alternative to scrolling, you can choose Map > Main > 200% or Map > Main > 100% to change the level of detail in the map.
n It is not possible to copy or move pictures between the map and pages using the Windows clipboard. If you want the same picture in both places, you must insert it twice.
