iMenuPro includes over 3,500 Artisan images that can be added to any menu.
Plus you can add any number of your own images, logos, or food photos to create your own image collection. Any image can be easily dragged to any spot on your menu and can be sized to any dimension. Artisan images can also be colorized.
To add an image (or picture) to your menu, use either the
Insert > Artisan Image or
Insert > Uploaded Image command. Once the Insert window appears, use the
Browse button to find the image you want.
Adding Your Own Images
If you're adding your own images, you'll see a camera icon button which will let you upload images from your computer to your own image collection where they can be accessed at any time. The image collection lets you manage all of your uploaded images in one place so you can search for the image you need and use the same image on multiple menus without having to upload it each time.
Drag image to menu
You can also drag an image from your computer directly onto the menu.
View Your Uploaded Images
To find your logo or any image that you have uploaded yourself, use
Insert Uploaded Image and then click
Browse your Image Collection. The images you have uploaded will appear in a list where you can select them and add them to your menu.
Delete an Image from your collection
To permanently delete an image from your image collection, find the image that you want to delete by using the
Insert Uploaded Image command and then click
Browse your Image Collection. The images you have uploaded will appear in a list where you can select them. Select the image you want to delete and then click the
Delete Image trash can icon, and then confirm the deletion.
Positioning the Image
Once on your menu, simply drag the image where you want it positioned. To resize, wave your mouse over the resize icon (lower right corner) and click and drag (or Shift-click and drag to free-scale proportion). For more precise editing, or if you're on a tablet, click (or tap) the image to edit it's dimensions, orientation, rotation, and if it's an Artisan image, its color too.
Use Shift-Click + drag on the resize icon to resize without proportion
