In this section we will cover how to add, edit and delete images within your Salsa account. While you have the ability to add images while creating forms or emails you can also add the images ahead of time to use later by you or other campaign managers.
To get started click the Assets section on the left side of the screen.
Supported File Types
You’ll be able to add images in any of the following file types:
Adding an asset
The first time you log in, you may only see a large field that says "Click here (yes, here!) to upload a file from your computer." since you may not yet have assets in your library. Whether or not you've added assets, you can always select the "+ Add an Asset" button to bring up the "Click here..." field. You'll see the button in the upper right-hand corner:
You can then find and select the image you want to add via your computer's file browser, and then click Open:
This adds the image to your account, and you'll be able to see it and all your assets in two ways - first in thumbnail view:
Or choose to view in List view, just click the icon
The last option for viewing an asset is using the search bar in the upper right hand corner. Just type in any part of the file name that you want to find and hit enter to filter your list by the word:
Editing Assets Using Adobe Creative
To edit an asset hover over the image you want to edit and click Edit Image.
This will open a new box where you can choose to Edit, Delete or Rename the image.
Rename and Delete are more self-explanatory, however clicking the Edit Image button will open Adobe Creative's Tools:
Above the asset, you'll see clickable list of 20 editing tools you can use. Below is a brief tour of each.
The Enhance tool allows you to apply five different effects to your images:
Effects lets you apply different color lenses to your image and choose the level of saturation, too.
Frames contains two types: Original, which consists of more cropped-style borders and Bohemia, which applies a hand-drawn looking frame to your asset.
Overlays come in two varieties: Original and Boom. Original lets you apply keyholes and shapes to your images while Boom contains colored shaped and patterns.
Stickers add a whimsical touch to any asset. Think of these as a box of dress-up materials for images.
This tool lets you rotate and flip images to create a mirror image horizontally or vertically.
The Crop tool lets you choose custom width & height, ratios as well as being a traditional cropping tool.
Classic resizing tool lets you determine the pixel height and width.
Lighting lets you adjust the Brightness, Contrast, Highlights and Shadows in your images.
Color editing adjusts Warmth, Tint and Fade.
Sharpness simply increases or reduces the clarity of the image.
Vignette lightens/brightens an image's edges, resulting in fun effects.
Blemish lets you blend areas of your image you wish blur. You can choose the brush size in order to determine the width of the blurred area.
Whiten highlights the lightest color by casting a sunlight-like glow over it.
Redeye is primarily used to remove unsightly redeye from images caused by flashes but it can also be used to counteract off-color elements of an image.
Draw provides a color palate, eraser and three brush sizes which let you draw on top of your image. The eraser comes in handy.
Splash reverts color images to black and white, then provides a spill-like coloring effect on top of the asset. Like we saw in Draw, an eraser is also included.
Text is a little less flashy than the other tools but can be very handy for creating flier-like emails or just to add words to images.
Meme turns average assets into what we hope are amusing images if not viral sensations!
