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”.
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. Right-click on the image anchor. Make sure this is the entire anchor, not just the graphic itself
3. Click on Object Properties and then click Object Attributes. Identify the GraphicStyle according to the box below. Assign the desired style name in the attribute value box.
4. Click Add, then Set, and then Set. Adobe FrameMaker may prompt you to approve the change as the operation cannot be undone
5. Save your Adobe FrameMaker source document.
6. Scan this document in ePublisher so that the GraphicStyle marker will show up under “Graphic Styles”
7. Generate output for your project. For more information, see “Generating Output”.
8. 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.
