    if you've never really played with them much.

    But it's not quite that simple when you're looking at building a website,

    especially an interactive website where you have editors who are doing things.

    You can use images in lots of different ways on a website,

    so you need to understand how you want to use that image,

    what the purpose of the image is,

Using Images in Drupal


Working with images can sound very straight-forward, but there are actually many, many ways that we use images on the web. You need to know what your use case is, and the right approach to meet those needs, to save yourself some headaches.

In this lesson, we're going to discuss the different ways we may need to use images and how to approach those with Drupal. We'll be discussing:

  • In-line content
  • Image fields
  • Creating galleries
