I’ve been getting a lot of questions about using images in Scrivener lately, especially from those interested in producing e-books. There are several ways to handle images in Scrivener, and I’ll provide a run down of the basics here.
First of all, the Windows version isn’t caught up yet on using image tags, so to insert an image into a project in Scrivener for Windows, you can either copy it from somewhere and paste it in, or import it to the Binder (outside the Manuscript/Draft folder) and drag it into the desired document.
This works in Mac as well.
Images in Scrivener are added inline, which means they’re treated like a character as far as word-wrapping goes. To resize an image, right-click and choose Edit Image (Windows) or Scale Image (Mac).
Mac users also have access to the image placeholder tag. There are several handy ways to use the placeholder tag.
