Assigning Image Styles in FrameMaker

Typically you do not need to specify an image style for images when you generate output. By default, each image generated by ePublisher is associated with the default image style defined in the Stationery. However, if you want to change the image style of one image or a small set of images, you can specify the image style you want to use for an image in your source document using the GraphicStyle marker type.

For example, if you want to specify a yellow border around a set of screen shot images that illustrate a particular piece of product functionality, you can specify that each of the screen shots images in the set have a yellow border around them through the use of the GraphicStyle marker type.

To assign a style to a specific image, your Stationery and FrameMaker template must have the GraphicStyle marker type configured. Your output format must also support specifying image styles. For more information about output formats that support this feature, see “Features Available in Each Output Format” on page 9.

The following procedure provides an example of how to specify image styles for images in Adobe FrameMaker source documents using unstructured Adobe FrameMaker 7.2. Steps for specifying image styles for images in Adobe FrameMaker may be different in other versions of Adobe FrameMaker.

To specify an image style for an image in an Adobe FrameMaker source document

  1. In your Adobe FrameMaker source document, locate the anchored frame for the image for which you want to specify an image style.

  2. In the anchored frame that contains the image for which you want to specify image scaling, insert a text frame by completing the following steps:

  3. On the Graphics menu, click Tools to display the graphic tools palette.

  4. Click the Text Frame icon.

  5. Drag the cursor over the portion of the image where you want to insert the text frame that will contain the GraphicStyle marker.

  6. In the Create New Text Frame window, in the Number field, type 1, and then click Set.

  7. Click outside the image, and then insert your cursor in the text frame.

  8. On the Special menu, click Marker.

  9. In the Marker Type field, select GraphicStyle from the drop-down list.

  10. If the GraphicStyle marker type is not on the list, check with the Stationery designer to obtain the name of the marker type the Stationery designer created to support this functionality and then use the marker type specified by the Stationery designer. For more information, refer to “Implementing Online Features in FrameMaker” on page 87.

  11. In the Marker Text field, type the name of the image style the Stationery designer configured for the Stationery used by your ePublisher project.

For example, if the Stationery designer configured an image style called BlueBorder in your Stationery, type BlueBorder.

  1. Click New Marker.

  2. Save your Adobe FrameMaker source document.

  3. Generate output for your project. For more information, see “Generating Output” on page 287.

  4. In Output Explorer, verify ePublisher created the image using the image style you specified by clicking on the page that contains the image for which you specified an image style and verifying ePublisher applied the image style you specified in the generated output. For more information about viewing output files in Output Explorer, see “Viewing Output in Output Explorer” on page 292.
