Quick Start: Image Sets
Dynamic Media Classic Image Sets give users an integrated viewing experience. In the dynamic Image Set Viewer, users can see different views of an item by clicking a thumbnail image. Image Sets lets you present alternative high-resolution views of an item.
The Image Set Viewer offers zooming tools for examining images closely. If you want, you can make guided zoom targets and Image Maps part of your Image Set. Image Sets make for a more concerted, intimate viewing experience.
This Image Sets Quick Start is designed to get up and running quickly with Image Set techniques in Dynamic Media Classic.
1. Uploading your master images for multiple views and swatches
Start by uploading the images for your Image Sets. Because users can zoom on images in the Image Set Viewer, take zooming into account when you choose images. Make sure that the images are least 2000 pixels in the largest dimension. Dynamic Media Classic supports many image file formats, but lossless TIFF, PNG, and EPS images are recommended.
Select the Upload button on the Global Navigation bar to upload files from your computer to a folder on the Scene7 Publishing System.
2. Creating an Image Set
In Image Sets, users click thumbnail images in the Image Set Viewer to see an image from a different side or angle.
To create an Image Set, click the Build button and choose Image Sets. Then, on the Image Set screen, drag your images onto the screen to compose your Image Set. Organize, add, and delete images as needed.
See Creating an Image Set .
3. Setting up Image Set Viewer Presets, as needed
Administrators can create or modify Image Set Viewer Presets. Dynamic Media Classic comes with default Viewer Presets for each rich media type. Use the Zoom Viewer: Custom > Images or Image Sets/Multiple Views presets to view your Image Sets.
You add or edit Viewer Presets from the Application Setup screen.
4. Previewing an Image Set
Select the Image Set in the Browse Panel, and then click Preview. Your Image Set appears in the Preview screen. Click the thumbnail icons to examine your Image Set in the selected Viewer. You can choose different Viewers from the Presets menu.

5. Publishing an Image Set
Publishing an Image Set places it on Dynamic Media Classic servers and activates the URL string.
This step is not necessary if you selected **Publish after save **(default) at the time you created and saved the Image Set.
Click the Mark for Publish icon to the left of its name in the Browse Panel. Then, click Publish . On the Publish screen, click Start Publish .
See Publishing .
6. Linking an Image Set to your Website
Dynamic Media Classic creates URL calls for Image Sets, and activates them after you publish. You can copy these URLs from the Preview screen.
Select the Image Set, and then click the Preview button. The Preview screen opens. Select an Image Set Viewer Preset and click Copy URL .
