Answers:

Can I display my own images inside the template? ( at top )

Yes! Most of our templates allow you to upload up to two images for display on your site. Simply choose the template that contains images, and replace images with your own.

A4Desk supports image files in JPG (non-progressive), GIF, BMP and SWF format. You can use the Images Manager button to insert your images into the templates. Click here to check the user guide section.

In order to see images, you also need to ensure you have the Adobe Flash Player 7.0 installed. If you don't have the latest version of Flash Player, you can update the player for free. Adobe Flash Player Update page.


Can I resize images inside A4Desk? ( at top )

Yes! A4Desk provides an Image Resizer for you to resize images. You can type in the image width and height you want. The "auto scale" field is for you to resize the image in proportion. All resized image will be saved as different file name.


Why I can import some JPGs into A4Desk, but not some others? ( at top )

You can import most JPG images, except Progressive JPG. Progressive JPG images are not supported in Flash, and is also not supported in some older browsers.

Simply save your Progressive JPG images as a standard GIF image (for PhotoShop users, use the Save for Web option). Or save as BMP format, you can then import the image into A4Desk templates.


How can I make the images be more clear inside the template? I have an image with very high resolution. But after importing into the template, the image become blur.( at top )

When you edit the images in A4Desk "Images Manager", you can select the "Stretch to Fit" button. Then your image will be resized to best fit the default image area. But the image quality may not be good enough as the original image as it is stretched.

Or you can resize the images in proportion with the "Auto Scale" button. But there may have some empty space within the default image area.

Therefore if you want to have better image quality, and make the image best fit the default image area, you should use some image editors to edit/resize the images before adding into the a4desk template (e.g. Fireworks, Photoshop).

You can see the default image size on the template. For example, for template A4DP001, size of the top image on the main page ("Company Information" tab) is 500 (width) x 100 (height). And size of the images on each page (e.g. "About Us" tab) is 150 (width) x 165 (height).

If you are using the Best Fit option, the image may be blur because the flash template stretch including the image, therefore the quality of image will be dropped. To get the best image quality, please use the Fix option.


If I use this <img src="http://www.abc.com/images/index_1.jpg"> in normal html file, it can display properly. But it cannot work in A4desk software, Why? ( at top )

<IMG SRC> is a standard HTML command and can be used within HTML pages only.
A4Desk templates are built base on Adobe Flash MX, which currently doesn't support <IMG SRC> tags, therefore this will not work within A4Desk.
If you need to insert images with A4Desk Templates, you can either:

Purchase the FLA source code file of the selected A4Desk template, and edit it using Adobe Flash directly.

How to make my own SWF align properly with the image area? ( at top )

The image area align SWF by it's top left corner. You should ensure the content of your SWF file are within the stage area and the stage size should be set to the same as the image area. This can be done by editing the .FLA source of your SWF file.
