Associate an Image with an Uploaded PDF or ZIP File

When a PDF image is uploaded to the File Manager, we often make an attempt to manufacture an image to represent the uploaded asset. This action is usually based on level of access, and the result is never as persuasive as something you might create yourself. This FAQ will details how to associate an image with a PDF or ZIP file.

The File Manager image panel is found by navigating to the 'Images' panel within the 'Library' module.

At first glance you will see that there's a red cross next to the Images menu item. This indicates that there are uploaded files that don't have an image attached. Quite frankly, you'll see this most of the time - it's both impossible and unnecessary to associate an image with every record you create... some files are for internal use while others will only ever be used in links (meaning that the image is redundant).

  Why Associate Images with Downloads?

When you create a Simple Panel, you will be required to select a form and a download. However, only those PDF downloads with an associated image will be able to be selected since we need something to show to represent the download. The same method applies to landing pages - we cannot assign an asset to a landing page unless we have an image to represent whatever offer or download we're making available.

You will routinely find the need to have an image associated with downloads.

  Assign Image to Download Record

From the 'Images' panel in the 'Manager', select the record that requires an image assignment. The select menu will show those records that already have an image assigned and those that do not. Once selected, a panel will be returned where you may upload an initial image or replace the existing image. Select 'Select Image', locate your image, and 'Upload Image'.

If an image already exists for the download record it will be shown when selected, otherwise just the Upload panel will be returned.

  Review Image Assignments

Review Image Assignments via the 'Review Images' panel. Those records with an image assigned are shown towards the lower part of the image. Remember, not every download record will require an image. The only records that will require an image are those assigned to Panels, Landing Pages, and other consumer-facing marketing material where download representation is important.

Book Covers: Pro Tip: For manufacturing 3D Book covers, consider using Photoshop's 'PSD Covers ' plugin. The free version gives you more options than you'll ever need. Also consider Generative AI tools that'll reference your PDF or image and create a book cover based on textual prompts. It is highly likely that we'll integrate the Generative AI features into Yabber in order to accomplish what we've described.
