Images in Student Reports

Send by email

The problem

Certain image format settings may break the display of student reports on the website and slow down printing.

The reasons

Very large images take a long time to print.

Objects that "float" in Word do not display correctly when converted to web format.

The solutions

1. Reduce image size before inserting into reports.

In iPhoto, use File -> Export and select the Medium size.

     

In Windows 7, right-click the image and select Resize Pictures. Select the Small size.

  

2.  Set the default text wrap setting in Word.

3. Ctrl click or right click any image to set it to wrap inline with text.

4. Avoid using text boxes, which also have text wrap settings.
