Adding images, graphs, and diagrams

You can upload images, or screenshots of graphs and diagrams into Cadmus by clicking the cadmus.zendesk.comhcarticle_attachments360002180876image-icon image icon, making it easy to add visuals to your submission.

This article covers how to:

 

Add an image

With Cadmus, the following image file types are supported: .jpg, .png, .gif and .bmp. 

To add an image

  2. Save it as an image, or take a screenshot of it.
  3. Back in Cadmus, click the cadmus.zendesk.comhcarticle_attachments360002180876image-icon image icon in the Formatting Toolbar.
  4. When the file browser appears, select the image you would like to upload.
