Quick Tour of the Article Editor
1 Creating articles, adding text and images
Creating your own content on dpreview.com is quick and easy with our new Article Editor. Whether you're writing a quick blog post, a product review, passing on a tip for getting the best from your camera or simply sharing the story behind your favorite shot, this guide should help you get started.
Creating a new article

The Article Editor
You should now see the article editor open with an empty (blank) page. The article editor allows you to add and format text, add images, and insert videos and tables to create content in the dpreview.com style. Although the software is still very much in beta, we've been testing it for several months and are pretty confident that it is stable and reliable enough to open up to public testing. We will be fine-tuning the editor, adding features and cleaning up some of the interface over the next few weeks, and there are a few minor issues (common to all browser-based editors) that we're aware of, but hopefully there is enough here for you to get your teeth into.
The toolbar at the top of the article editor offers basic formatting, image insertion and layout and link, video and page creation tools.
Hover over any tool in the toolbar to find out what it is. The tools offered in version 1 are:
- Edit page title
- Add a page
- Delete a page
- Format (paragraph, header styles)
- Bold, italic (standard keyboard shortcuts work here)
- Insert a horizontal rule
- Lists (bulleted or numbered)
- Increase or decrease indent
- Add or remove a link to highlighted text
- Remove formatting
- Find, Find and Replace
- Undo and Redo
- Insert, edit and layout images
- Embed YouTube or Vimeo video (by pasting a link)
- Create and edit a table
