Some simple guidelines for writing for the web.
Goal. Replace or resize an image.
CKFinder is provided by default on MountainRiver CMS sites, although there is a Drupal media manager that may be requested or speciifc page locations may have a 'file upload button' within the form to simplify site standardisation and generation of multiple instances of the same image.
1. Edit the page, or block. It doesn't matter where if you just want to replace an image, as CKFinder is accessible from any text editor block. To add an image you need to run the text editor in the location where you want to add the image.

The Finished Page
The finished page will have an Info Box as illustrated.
The shop, how we set it up has shop pages and product pages. This allows for differnet colours of t-shirts to be displayed as an exmaple.
Details that appear on the shop page can, confusingly, come from either the shop page or the first product page. The assumption is that for flexibility it comes from the first product page.
