Stages of an animated image

There are 4 important elements in the Animated Image Object:

  1. the Initial Status, i.e. what you see as the content is loaded;
  2. the Final Status i.e. what is displayed on mouseover;
  3. the Transition, i.e. the effect to go from the initial to the final status;
  4. the Button, which overlaps the contents for the final status and includes a link.


How to set up an animated image

  • Double-click on the Animated Image Object you added to open the settings window.
  • Set the Object Size by defining its Height and Width in pixels.

  • If you want to add a Button, you need to:
    • activate the Show Button option;
    • report a Label;
    • define colors, styles and margins for the button.
