Importing Images

Importing images into ReadySuite is accomplished using the Image Files import wizard, shown below.

To understand how to import images into ReadySuite, let's work through a simple example. You can follow along by downloading the example data here.

Example 1 - Importing a folder containing images

Follow along by downloading

Let's start by extracting our example data to a folder, which will result in a folder called IMAGES that contains tiff image files. We want to import these images into ReadySuite to prepare them for a document production.

Begin by opening the Import Images wizard shown above.

There are several options on this page, but for the moment we can leave most of them as default. Since we want to import a folder of images, our first step is to populate the Data Path field with the path to our folder.

I've extracted my files to C:\Data\Demo, but your path may be different. Click Next to move to the next dialog.

On this screen, we are shown the folder structure for the files we will be importing. We can select the types of images we want to import, as well as choose to import text files if there are any. The defaults are fine, so click Next.

Here we are presented with various ways that we can name our documents for identification once they are imported into ReadySuite. Let's stick we the defaults and hit Next.

Finally we are presented with various options. The defaults are fine here, but you can learn more about these settings in the appendix. To begin importing your images into ReadySuite, click Start.

Our images have been imported, click Finish and let's check them out!

Good job!
