There are several ways to insert images into your smart notebook. I'm going to show you how to add images from your computer, and from a website like Wikipedia, of course, respecting all copyright laws. To enter an image from your computer that you've stored on your computer, select the Insert button on the menu bar. So we're going to go over here to the Insert button, and right down there is Picture. And we're going to go ahead and select Picture. Now I've browsed my way to my Picture folder.
And I really like this picture of the penguins, so I'm going to go ahead and select that picture of the penguins, and hit Open. That immediately inserts the picture onto your smart notebook page. Now this is a giant picture, and definitely too large for debt, for displaying, so I'm going to go ahead and grab that resize bar, make that picture a little bit smaller so it fits on the screen a little bit better. There we go. Now, I also want to switch gears and show you how to insert a picture from Wikipedia. So I'm going to go ahead and go to my browser.
And I've already navigated my way to Wikipedia and I've identified a picture that I want to copy. To copy that picture, I'm going to go to the pen tray, where I have my right-click Button, and my very next touch on the page will be a right-click. I'm going to right click on that picture, I'm going to go ahead and select copy image, and now I'm ready to paste that image on to my smart notebook page. Just going back to my task bar, I'm going to jump back into smart notebook. Now I'm going to, again, go to my pen tray, select the right-click button, only this time I'm going to right-click on the background of the page.
So I'm right-clicking, and I'm going to select Paste. And there is the picture that I copied and pasted on to my Smart Notebook page. Again, with my Selector Tool selected, I'm going to go ahead and drag that picture up, so I can grab the resize handle, and resize that picture down, and place it on the page as appropriate. Very nice. So it's that easy to insert a picture from your computer, or from any Internet source, of course respecting copyright laws. Once those images are in your notebook, you can play with them, you can resize them, and you can annotate on top of them.
