There are a number of different ways you can use the image widget to edit Immerse images so that they fit your content and look great.

Cropping an Immerse image

You can quickly crop an Immerse image within the Turtl editor. Not happy with the result? Don't worry you can re-crop the original image as many times as you need.

1. Move your mouse over your image until the formatting icons appear above. Select the Crop icon:

2. Position the highlighted window over the image to your chosen position. Once you are happy press Crop and the image will be cropped to your selection:

Note: You can resize the window by dragging the sides or corners of the box. You can also see how your chosen selection will look in the preview window.

3. If you want to crop the image again, just press the crop icon again and repeat the steps above.

Moving your image 

1. Move your mouse over your image until the formatting icons appear above. Select the move icon so that your mouse arrow turns to a hand.

2. Drag the image positioning line to where you would like to move your image to and release.

Adding a caption to your image

1. Move your mouse over your image until the editing icons appear at the top. Select the settings icon.

2. Select the Caption Tab and write your caption in the text box. 

3. You can choose how to align your caption text under the image using the dropdown.

Formatting your caption

You can use markdown symbols * or _ to style your captions as bold or italic text.

For Italics - insert one asterisk  (*) or one underscore (_) either side of the word/s you would like to italicise  

For bold - insert two asterisks  (**) or two underscores (__) either side of the word/s you would like to bold

For example, in the following sentence the word 'my' will appear in italics and 'caption' in bold:

Here is *my* image **caption**

Note: The style of the bold and italic text within the captions can be customised as part of your branding.

Updating your image interaction settings

By default, your Immerse image is static within your Doc, but you have the option to enable the following when a reader clicks on the image:

  1. Zooming.

  2. Follows a URL Link.

  3. Launches a pre-populated email.

  4. Links to another page within the Doc.

To enable any of the above, move your cursor over the image until the formatting icons appear. Select settings.

Then select the interactions tab

Enabling/disabling image zoom

To enable or disable image zooming, simply toggle the zoom option on or off. Please note that when the zoom is enabled, any link options will automatically be disabled as the image cannot zoom and follow a link upon a reader's click.

Select which type of link you require from the dropdown.


When a reader selects your image they will be directed to the hyperlink in a new tab

  1. Select URL from the dropdown.

  2.  Insert your hyperlink into the box.

  3. Select if you would like it to open in a new tab or in a lightbox (this will open it a smaller window within the Doc).


When a reader selects your image, their email client will be launched with a pre-populated email

  1. Select E-mail from the dropdown

  2.  Populate the email fields that you require


When the user clicks on your image the pages will turn to the selected page within the content.
