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
- Either owned by you, used with permission, or uploaded under the guise of fair use
- Smaller than 5MB
Find examples of e-books with media in the Appendix.
- Visit JMU Libraries guide to Free Media for Creative Use. Look for the Open Access icon (open padlock) to find openly licensed and public domain files.
