Images are an important part of your website. They add interest to the page and catch the visitor’s eye. They break up the visual monotony of text. They evoke thoughts, feeling, and emotion and can convey in an instant what might take a thousand words to describe. Where images on your site are concerned, you might want to add a banner image to the top of every page to advertise an upcoming sale or highlight a category of summer close-out items. You might want to include a picture of your staff on the about us page. If you operate a pet supply, you might even want to post pictures of your employees’ pets.

Since images are so important, it’s also important that you have an efficient way to manage them. It’s important that you have an Image Manager.

The Image Manager is an SMT feature that lets you add images to your site. You can upload new images to the file cabinet or select from images that exist in the file cabinet. Images are stored in the SMT site image folder in the file cabinet. This folder is located in the file cabinet at Web Site Hosting Files > Live Hosting Files > SSP Applications > NetSuite Inc. - CMS > CMS > [Site Number] > files. You can also upload images directly to this folder from within NetSuite. Any images that you upload in this manner are also available for use with the Image Manager.

Note

The Image Manager lets you choose from only the images stored in this folder. You cannot select images that are stored elsewhere in the file cabinet.

  • Drag and drop upload of one or more image files.

  • Selection and upload of multiple files by browsing to the file location on your computer.
