Adding an image into a letter template

Alto uses a word processor to create letter templates. As part of this process, you're able to add an image to a Brochure, Letter or Window Card template. 

 Note

You will need access to System Administration, to add the image into your Group or Branch settings. Your appointed Group Administrator will have access to these permissions

You first need to upload the image into your Alto software. Depending on whether the image is going to be used across all branches or only a single branch, will depend on whether you add the image in to Group Settings or Branches.
