Visuals Management

Seems like a routine task, but as your stock of photos grows you'll soon appreciate Linear's simple yet powerful interface for handling this important portion of your content.

Visuals can be uploaded to your linear system either individually or ten (10) at a time. Each time a visual is uploaded, your Linear system will automatically examine and, if neccesary, modify the uploaded file. If the file name is not internet friendly (i.e contains spaces or reserved characters), your Linear system will replace the offending characters. If the file extension is missing or incorrect, the system will apply the correct information.

Visual Placement
Wherever you happen to be working within your Linear system, you'll have pulldown menus listing the available images in the appropriate folder. Working on an editorial item for the October 1, 2003 - the system will list images stored in that folder. Typically, your Linear system allows images to be aligned (left, right, center, top, bottom and more!), bordered, shadowed, and captioned.

Once you've uploaded an image to the system, you'll be able to perform some basic modifications if neccessary. Create a copy, resize, crop and more are some of the tools available. Preview screens are available throughout the process.

PDF Format
You are welcome to upload PDF format files to your Linear system through the image upload prcoess. They will be stored in the smae folders, but listed in a separate area. Optionally, your Linear system can covert the PDF to a jpg format.

times newspapersWhen we realized we needed to upgrade our Web site, we knew we could not do it alone. Linear Publishing more than answered the call. All the new features we were looking for were already in place at Linear. In addition, if we came up with a feature not yet available, they created it.

We now publish two Web sites a week in less time than it took us to publish one. The free time has opened me up to explore new ideas and features to use on our site. It's a great feeling when you can get an idea and in no time have it up and running online. Thanks to it's ease of use, our Web site is getting better and better every day.

We are always getting compliments from our readers and advertisers. With help from Linear Publishing, we are becoming the e-voice of the community that we were striving for.
