1. Adding Images

  • Select the image from your files or use the drag & drop option

Click the image icon and choose the "select from your file" option, or just drag & drop the image. You can also type in the "/image" shortcut, click enter and choose the right option.

Please, keep in mind that you won't be able to edit the picture (e.g., change its size). However, advanced editing can be done with the Surfer Chrome extension for Google Docs.

  • Add an image directly from Pixabay

Pixabay is a source of high-quality images. You can search for the perfect photos to add to your article directly in Content Editor!

To add an image from Pixabay:
1. Click on an image icon.
2. Choose the "add from Pixabay" option.
3. Pick the image you like the most.
4. Voilà!

You can also type in the "/image" shortcut, click enter and choose the "add from Pixabay" option:

  • Download our Google Docs extension if you want to apply more advanced editing to the image. This extension will open the guidelines bar from Content Editor within your Google Document. Using it would give you all the benefits of Google Documents – adding tables, formatting possibilities, and backup stored directly on your Google Drive.

Use a placeholder if you still haven't decided when it comes to choosing images to include in the article. Here's how to add a placeholder to Content Editor:

1. Click on the image icon.
2. You don't need to do anything more! Here you have a ready-to-use placeholder!
3. Add the alt text if you wish.

💡Remember that adding a suggested keyword to the alt text also counts towards Content Score! You can add the alt text to any image.

If you're working in Google Docs, you can add the alt text that counts toward the Content Score. The only thing to remember is to add it to the Description, not the Title of the "Alt text" option.

2. Commands

Use Commands to create content without constantly moving your mouse. With a single slash /, you can choose various options from the menu, such as adding images, headings, links, or lists.

3. Shortcuts

Shortcuts can help you edit your text even quicker. They are adjusted on what device you use, so you hover on the icon depending on what changes you need for your content.

4. Bubble menu

Select the text you want to edit, and the Bubble Menu will appear and follow you within your work. No need to scroll back up to the menu.

You can add links to your articles from the same menu. Once added, hover your cursor over the link if you want to preview, delete, or edit it.

Do you still need help? Don't worry! You can contact us at [email protected] or via live chat by clicking the icon in the bottom-right corner.
