Image Linking and Zooming

Plexie supports two actions when users click on an image.

  1. Link to another web page – when the user clicks the image, another web page (or Plexie page) it opens either in the current page or in a new browser tab.
  2. Zoom in on the image – when the user clicks, the image enlarges and the user can zoom in/out on the image.

You can set these behaviors by clicking on an image and selecting the behavior you desire:

  1. Be sure your Plexie is in Edit mode (Edit button is black on Edit/View control in upper right of your Plexie).
  2. Click on an image in your Plexie.
  3. In the image toolbar, click on the Gear Icon to open the Media Properties panel.

Select Image Click Behavior

  1. Click the Click/Tab Action control to enable image click behavior.
  2. For image zooming, select Zoom.
  3. To navigate to another page select Open Link
    1. Fill in the web address (URL) of the page you’d like to open.
    2. If you’d like to open the page in a new browser tab, select Open in New Tab, otherwise the page will open in the same window.

Allow Download

If you would like viewers of your page to be able to download your image, select Allow Download and a download control will appear on your image.
