External Image Element

Use the external loader to add images and SWF files that need to be loaded externally, rather than embedded in to the skin. This is especially useful if you have a lot of thumbnails in a tour and are not using the Node Image element. Calling the images from an external source will help keep the tour running smooth rather than sluggish.

You can also embed a YouTube or Vimeo video.


External URL – Enter the image’s URL for externally loading the images. The URL can be a file path or a web URL. The paths should be absolute.

Content Scaling – Choose how the content will be scaled within the frame of the external image container. Choose from the following options:

  • Fill
  • Horizontal
  • Vertical
  • Min
  • Max
  • None

Never enlarge – Select to never scale the content up.

Clip content – Select to have the content always clipped.

  • Alignment – Choose how the content will align to the external image container.

Loading – This option affects how an external SWF loads.

  • Unload SWF on hide – Select this option if the SWF contains video or sound to stop playback of the SWF when it is hidden or closed.
