Making Your Book

15 Images and Graphics

Use the Add Media button in your editing window to upload images as well as audio or video files. Uploaded files will be stored in a media library so that if you are using an item more than once, you do not need to upload it multiple times.

Image adjustments (cropping, shading, etc.) should be made prior to uploading. It is possible to make basic size adjustments within Pressbooks, but the tool is not meant to provide a full suite of graphics editing functions.

Any uploaded media should be:

  • Optimized for accessibility (read more)
  • Either owned by you, used with permission, or uploaded under a determination of fair use (read more)
