Knowledge Base: How to add image to TDX Knowledge Base article.


This article provides instructions on how to add images to TDX Knowledge Base articles.


Note about adding images: Before adding images to an article, consider if they are truly necessary. Screen shot images can change frequently as services/devices are updated and may not reflect the user’s experience. If you believe the images are necessary, be sure to include alternative text to make the images accessible. (See Internal Purdue IT Article: Web Accessibility best practices for images on websites).
